"Head coach of started the owner of the Dallas Cowboys nwea cells. That's the soccer league. Lisa Baird in the WNBA. Kathy engelhardt and one more one more mark Cuban the mavs who's been very outspoken and typing things like do your f ing job on twitter and he says that he just might run for president this year so we do know that Robert Kraft gave Donald trump a million dollars when he was running. We know that Jerry Jones gave Donald trump a million dollars. So I think it's savvy to bring a guy like Cuban. I'm surprised because I usually think this president likes to fall You know How people around him who fawn all over him a very obsequious and ostentatious and just sycophantically kisses behind and they don't he fires them so I think it's actually surprisingly good move because mark. Cuban is a very smart guy when it comes to business. Various Smart Guy. He's savvy he's sixty one. He's probably in his prime when it comes as a businessman. So and you know a WHO's a vocal critic and I think it it shows you're an adult a grown man or grown woman when you can bring in someone who is outspoken against you but you realize that for the greater good they will help now. I have a feeling that trump doesn't even know Cubans on the list but no but trump said. We have to get our sports back. I'M TIRED OF WATCHING BASEBALL Games. That are fourteen years old when he said that r Kelly said what did you say about fourteen years old. Sorry you'll probably see a joke like that on spayed or somewhere else but MLB NHL NBA. They'd all be playing right now and ever since really go. Bare tested positive. And he's okay now but every league has done this and the NFL of course is the most popular league in the United States and they've already adjusted plans for the draft. We talked about that. Still GonNa have it. But it's not gonNA be altogether We know that the Olympics have been pushed back a year and golf and tennis and all that so is trump tired of watching games. That are old. I watch any games. Do you know what I watched a little bit yesterday. Bulgarian clog dancing. Well Anyway. Before that I watched a rerun obviously from last year team handball. Apparently I have something called the Olympics channel. This is this is why it's feast or famine because it was famine. Tv wise unless a dramatic word but as part of the old adage. When I was growing up we had three networks. What no Fox. And then we had. Pbs and then we had two independent stations channel forty four and channel thirty six and we got garbage reruns most the time so you basically had six channels and most of it was trash. Now it's still mostly trash but I have a channel called the Olympics channel which just shows old Olympics nonstop and I didn't even know I had it heard about. I don't even know I had it but there was a team handball match from Denmark between Norway and Bulgaria and I know that my Danes are some of the best in the world in fact when I was at a reunion in Denmark family reunion. My grandfather's from there in nineteen ninety. Six one of my relatives was a pilot for Sas Scandinavian Air Service and. He told me that he had just flown back from Atlanta from the Olympics that the Danish team handball team which won the gold and he said they came up in a cockpit and he shouldn't they should on the gold medals and Yacky imagine that used to be able to go in the copy. My my friend Steve. Right before nine eleven. He was landing at Logan Airport in Boston and he asked the stewardess. Do you think in the cockpit. She's like yeah why not actually stood behind the two pilots as they were landing. He wasn't even in a seat they said. Yeah you want check out sure. And he's a he's a he's bigger than me he's six two but he's a fat guy totally choked out the pilots. It was a much more simple time back then east but yes we would like to get our sports going again and I can guarantee you. That trump ain't watching these reruns if he's flipping channels. I was actually the only time I've seen the guy in person and I wanna say it's the only time I've seen a president. A standing president in person was a couple years ago. The Army Navy game in Philadelphia trump was down on the field and I thought the security was going to be horrible with my media pass. I went through everything. I didn't say I wouldn't have had a weapon. I still had to go through metal detectors but I was surprised at how lax security was. The trump was that I wasn't Washington. Dc when I saw marine one go over and there's always marine one marine to marine three. So there's like three choppers you'll see one on the White House back on but there's usually two or three of them and you don't so you don't know which one the president is and if you WANNA take potshot with a Stinger Service air missile or something. I might talking about. Weapons and the presence oppression. Do I get in trouble? But what I'm trying to say is That's the only time I've seen again person and I'm sure that he left at halftime. You know he goes out there. We who make America Great Avenue and I'm not getting anything that's him. It's just you know even our most sporty. Presidents Kennedy Love Football Knicks. Ford played football at Michigan. Nixon liked football Taft threw out the first pitch but deep down. I think they got bigger fish to FRY. But we'll talk about that when we come back we might well.

Thank you for that and welcome back to Schill to the with you We've also we didn't know he'd get them but now we've confirmed him at eleven ten we're going to have a former astronaut. Mike Mass Amino back on the show again. He's here to talk about the Hubble telescope. We had a guy who wrote a book about it yesterday. Science Channel on Sunday is going to be doing a thirtieth anniversary show about the Hubble so we got navy seal foundation coming up next to jump brings us. We're GONNA talk about Janu about getting School kids their lunches during the pandemic. We're going to have an author on. That's going to talk about how the legal issues have changed during the pandemic and they were going to talk about the Hubble telescope. Maybe here's the funny thing that makes me laugh in a good way. If it wasn't for the pandemic this would still be my lineup. I I'll go. I'll get off the information sports superhighway's sometimes but I'll get on the on ramp real quick again but as I say you know trump sick of fourteen year old reruns but Dr Anthony Fao. Ci Of course is a guy that we look to. He's always out those horrifying standup charades as they say in England. Charade these Those press conferences do more to hurt than help the country I think. Because it's just it's fractious and there's a lot of posturing and it's a campaigning and it's padding yourself on the back it's just so weird. It's all embarrassing. I don't know it's just all very very embarrassing. If you think it's cool right now. When you get to my age stuff like that I think embarrasses you see Ruka older than you think looks so foul. She was asked about trump says. He wants sports back so they went to the nation's top infectious disease expert and they said and when is it coming back and He said well there's no fans and players are sequestered. He said quote. There's a way of doing that. Nobody comes to the stadium. Put the players in big hotels wherever you want to play. Keep them very well. Surveilled have them tested every single week and make sure they don't wind up infecting each other or their family and just let them play the season out and quote now Fao Ci was also asked what the current BIOS specifically means for a short and MLB season and start of the NFL season at fans are not in attendance. And how that will hurt the league's and he said that they'll still be plenty of interest. Well Yeah I mean we. We saw a poll from the Stolman School of business at Seton Hall and when asked it was basically three quarters of people said that even when the game even when the Cova Nineteen vaccine is out and available. There's still not going to the Games now. I don't believe that because you're asking them now before there is a vaccine right now. Nobody wants to go. I remember I was at the game. I call it a game. It didn't happen but game. Three of the nineteen eighty nine world series. I was candlestick park and I was wearing my raider starter jacket. Mia's hat and there was a huge earthquake. And I got freaked out and they go. You can go back and I'm like Nah. I was still spooked on the stadium. I go back there because I was spooked. People are spooked right now. But after you get the all clear and there's a month of everybody knocking acting normal. I hope and another month. You want to go back to the stadium. Nope not going. There's a vaccine if you get it. We'll give you a shot. Nope not going. That number will come way down income way below. I think it would. They'll still be. I think maybe about as high as a quarter of the people but now three quarters so we know. Mlb has been brainstorming about beginning of the season in Arizona with no fans in attendance and putting the players in a bubble and the governor of Arizona. Doug Ducey loosey-goosey Doug Ducey. Easy peasy lemon squeezy Japanese. And he said that he'd be on board with hosting games. You told you say today. I have had discussions with the Commissioner of Major League Baseball. Well I want to hold the context of those discussions in confidence. I want to let everyone know. Zona at the right time is very open minded to hosting whatever major league baseball would like from the state at the time it would be appropriate for public health if Arizona were in a position to reopen I think he meant the content of the discussions not to contest. But whatever F- Ouchi Is very interested in seeing baseball back. Because his favorite team are the nats he said. I want to see them play again. Which is good article in the chronicle today about how he has been You know this has been his career. He was out here in the eighties and San Francisco working on stuff. But I think about as with anything. We acclimate right. I think people are pretty resilient we acclimate and now this is starting is starting to feel a little bit normal a little more routine and we look on TV and movies and see people you see a New York street just packed shoulder to shoulder with people. And you're like oh my gosh. We did that now. I see people high five who he touched or guys hugging each other like. Oh my gosh. They hugged after that goal. It all starts to look a little bit of weird. Now it's GonNa take a while to circle back stateside and get back into civilian life style if I can use a military term there but when I was at the comedy store in La and that was it about a month ago today. And I was down there and I I called up my buddy who lives down there now. Derek Papa said that we're going to the comedy store so we went over there and people were making jokes about crony. They're like. Hey thanks for being brave and the next day continued onto Arizona and right around Coachella on the road. I hear that they've canceled spring. Training people were like. Why did you keep going if I if I have a hotel paid for and it's paid for and I've taken time off from work? Why would I turn around and come back to me? That seems a million times more stupid island on some hikes and things like that. Yeah why not? But I'm thinking about like when Derek and I were at the That comedy store. That was just a matter of days before those things got shut down because when I came back and I was in Pasadena on the way back. That's when mayor Garcetti He basically closed down in La and remember when we were doing shows here. And I said how long until the war isn't sharks. Closed their things down. I what's GonNa Happen with the giants? I was saying that I thought it was a remote possibility that the warriors and sharks my close down but I thought there's no way they're gonNA close down baseball because you know there's no roof and now we things change on a dime you know and as I said it's hard to believe that that was just a month ago that I was down in Arizona and you know still going to bars and Scottsdale. That were just absolutely packed with people not anymore. You know and I tell you what it seems like ten years ago because so all you can do now just as a little tale of the tape is just try to embrace the things that are going. Well I mean a lot of people who never get to see their families get to see their families now. You know you're saving money on Commute. The environment's better. I don't care about the well you know. It's not an environmental crazy tree hugger but you can say look environment's better. I guess you know. We don't have those hippie organic farmers markets anymore. That are staying on the air. Just kidding but I look we all want sports to come back and people are going to be a little spooked when they do come back. We know that it's GonNa take a while and we don't even know if this is the new normal how we're going to have to socially distanced each other. You know do this three months a year four months a year half a year. I heard a scientist yesterday. Said it'll be September of twenty twenty one before people wall started going back to stadium again and I just want to slap that guy on the face. Not because he's deliver bad news. If he's telling the truth I'd be like well that's heavy. He has no fricken. `Way Dr Evil No frigging way of knowing. It's September of twenty twenty one. Now if he's right he could be like Woo Hoo on the ESA guy that said the Astros win the world series and three years. He could be that guy but No I think A good way to look at it and it's kind of a defeatist manner. But maybe you don't get your hopes. Crushed is the fact that You could say and I've heard this. Just pretend that twenty twenty is going to be like this and if it gets lifted before the end of the air then it's gravy. I can't do that. That's too long. I sort of think of it is. I hope we get some summer is what I would like to do. I hope we get all of July. I hope we get most of June but we do know that April is going to be a one hundred percent. Lock it down seal in place.

Coast to coast and around the world on American Forces Radio Network. It's great to welcome back to the program. It's been a while but our buddy John Branca's of course you know him from the Espn Award winning show sports science well. He's here to talk about an event he's got on on Friday. It's a live streaming event. That kill cliff is putting on for the Navy Seal Foundation John. Welcome back to the show. It's great to have you again. Tell us a little bit more about what you're going to be doing here. Yeah you know I appreciate you having me back you know. Obviously everything is pretty crazy right now and You know I think that what we all really need our words of wisdom on how to be resilient so the live event that we're doing is on Friday Eight and it's all about being resilient and we're going to be hearing from Ray Lewis and stumped some incredible Navy Seals Ryan Bater Robbie lawler Guys who are really at the top of their game so we're GONNA get words of inspiration on just simply tips on how to be resilient Mindset that it takes to be resilient to bounce back especially during a crazy time like this and you know there's nobody better than you know navy seals and elite athletes to sort of guide our way through this. You know in no way is this. You know a telephone. This is really what we WANNA do is almost public service. Something that we think that that You know the general audience really needs to hear from the best and brightest minds in the country On resilience. Yeah you're right. I mean there's no better person to tell you that and I've had seals on the past in fact just yesterday I had Mark Devine on the show and he was talking about when he started Seal school there. Were one hundred. Eighty five candidates at the end only nineteen graduated and he was number one class so I think the one thing is is people say oh my Gosh. I'm not Mark Devine and I think that's where you're going to do a good job with it because you're going to say I'm not a navy seal either but let's take what they do these amazing men and we'll put it into what we can do. A hundred percent. You know it's you know. I've had the great fortune of working with some of the best athletes in the world throughout my entire career of have the great fortune of working with two incredible men and women and men and women in the armed forces you know when I tell them look. I'm a mere. Mortal averages could be You know I represent the everyday person and I really WANNA learn from the best as to how to stay calm and how to stay focused You know I think that this situation particular. You know this Kobe situation. You know it's one thing to be able to deal with problems that you've created yourself in your own life. You know making a bunch of bad choices and you know sort of suffering the repercussions but you know the the sort of situation that we're all in right now is just been thrust upon us unexpectedly so I think that you know. We're about five weeks into this now and I think we're all trying to wrap our brains around you know. How permanent is this? You know when when do we bounce back to quote normal is they're going to be a new normal That uncertainty certainly is requiring us to be resilient and requiring us to understand that we're going to have to dig deep In terms of you know really thriving I also think one of the things. I think we can learn from Navy seals. And I've always been told that at seal training the the linebacker types they are the first to ring the bell. But it's those wiry thin guys who just say you only leaving as if I'm dead and so really it's it's a lesson in the power of your mind and you can be five hundred to ninety eight pounds and you can still be just as mentally strong which I think. A lot of people don't know that they can be. Yeah you know it's it's interesting how You know it's not the size of the dog in the fight but the fighting God and you know that's certainly true for us. Gee You know we are. A- you know in terms of being You know incredibly resilient. It's something that all of us possess you know it crosses you know race religion and gender and size and any kind of thing that can separately is out you can look at you know the different hands that are being Delta people. At this time you know some people are really Threat you know some people are really thriving and making out you know because Cova is good for their business. You know for many others. It's awful for their business And we're just being thrown into. It seems like there. There's this massive chasm that's forming That's GonNa require us to you. Know D- Dig deep into really Pull some inner strength out so you know in terms of the kind of person who can be resilient you're right you know it's not just you know someone who's you know elite linebacker in the NFL or excite or even a navy seal It needs to be everyday people One thing that I've heard is that you know average is a choice you know being average and you know saying Oh. There's nothing that I can do. You know that's really a choice you know. We're hoping that this event will give people a toolbox to really reach into in terms of refining their ability to be very well said a couple more questions for John. Broncos is going to host a live streaming event Friday from seven to eight. Pm Eastern It's GonNa Stream Sponsored by kill cliff energy drinks how to be resilient in the new world Your show sports science of course was such a phenomenon and I think I don't know if I give you the the credit the credit or the blame or whatever but you started such a trend John that you know. I'm watching a baseball game. And they'll show the outfielder a great catch and then after the break they'll come back and we'll say you know he had a fourteen point two percent chance on making that cats. I'm like come on. What are you John? Branca's I mean everybody's going with these. Where do they get these numbers from John? Yeah you know it's interesting because you know we are very blessed to be at the right time at the right place the right networks and you know we. Sports Science went on for eleven years and eighteen hundred episodes. And you know we feel that we need you know A Little Dent in the sports universe in terms of being able to reshape the way that we look at sport. It's interesting because although I do believe that that we certainly have played a part in the rise of analytics. It was obviously moving. That was going on. We were just sort of at the forefront of it but I'm the first one to say look don't use analytics as Gospel It's just another factor to consider when analyzing anything I love to say you know the expression bigger stronger. Faster does not mean better Everybody's like oh I want the biggest strongest fastest guy or you know I want. I want this particular thing from an analytics point of view. And I'm like look if you were to use that metric you know Larry. Bird probably doesn't play in the NBA so there. There's an obvious intent to affect even more important than what the metrics w but the metrics can guide you To understanding how difficult something was In order to happen you know what the physics underlying actually are And I think that it's really interesting to be able to put sport in into look through the Lens of science just to give you a totally different perspective but by no means do I think that analytics are the gospel of sport. I think that they're just another thing to consider. Amen to that. Yeah when you were doing sports science one of the things that was so catchy about to was you had great production values and graphics and you had the studio there which Kinda looked like a pseudo lab as well and it looked like no expense was spared. And if it wasn't you pulled off a like it was out of all those episodes. Can you think of one or two moments where you were just like you know? Wow I'm behind the scenes. I'm doing this and I still can't believe what we've uncovered here. Honestly I say this you know being in the world Just underneath the name sports nights honestly I every day every day that I get to work with Immediately lead athlete. I'm just blown away and I am saying. Oh my God how am I here And it's obviously come sort of form Full Circle where when we started the show actually conceived in two thousand six and launched in two thousand seven. That's pre iphone just to get people You know perspective out of a whole generation athletes who have grown up. You know kids who are watching it since they were ten and now there are twenty three and they're like Oh my God I watched your show growing up and I can't believe I'm here on the set It's it's interesting how that's come full circle because when you start off with the Ray Lewis News and drew brees Gerald and you know now when you have the more you know the the sort of new crop of athletes. It's amazing you know but I the thing that blows me away. The most is how there's this perception that elite athletes have like sort of this air dam of potentially you know being arrogant or You know to sort of key super cocky and honestly the reason why we never paid anybody to be involved in sports science and the reason being is that the best don't want they don't do it for the money and money's just a byproduct and they wanna learn growing so the thing that surprised obviously it should be surprising everybody Is that look athletes. You know lead athletes and elite people in their respective fields are willing to do stuff for free because they're gonNA learn something that's GonNa make them that much better so while I'm standing there off of watching what's going on in front of me. The athlete is soaking it up in awe. Well because they're learning something and you know that sort of two way Mutual respect is something that I really cherish very cool last question when The sport of golf is such a tortuous psychological game. Because of course the the inertia is all on the Golfer. You're not reacting or getting chase or chasing down everyone and I've seen as have you over the years some of the more ridiculous Items that You know the the golf Medicare whatever where the golf club breaks in the middle. So you don't swing too hard and the Rodney dangerfield little target thing. What is it about sports science and golf that you've been able to find? Have you found anything to help the average golfer because it just seems like? It's we think about that more than any other sport like. How can I win? Yeah I a lot of people asking the question hardest working out to answers the hardest sports play like off the couch having never done. It is hockey the hardest sport be excellent at this golf In terms of giving people advice on how to be great at golf one thing I can tell you is there clearly is not a correct answer in how to swing a golf club. All that needs to happen. Is that the face of the club. Needs to be squared. The ball upon impact. And you look at everybody from Jim. Furic to you. Know if you look at Jim Furic and then look at Rory mcilroy or tiger woods and see how different their swings are. They're all different kinds of approaches to generate power But at the end of the you know at the point of impact. The club head is sloshed. Still at a super two and really not over thinking golf is is one of these really interesting games where there's a fantastic book called the Zen of Golf and it just talk about how we over think everything in Golf is the perfect example of look every note two shots at the same and everything is different and it's an incredibly unfair sport because the worst you are at it the harder it is to play. If you're shanking it off the tee. You're hitting from behind the tree that a PGA tour going to get out you know took TV. A tour tour player couldn't get out so If we don't oversee thinking and we allow our brains to just understand you have to swing the club and be flushing impact. It's amazing how relaxing and not worrying about everything does help your golfing tremendous And that's really kind of bubba Watson approach. You know he never took a golf lessons this kind of self taught and he's got this big huge draw in his In the plight of his ball and he just plays it he just is like well. I can't hit it straight so I'm just GONNA play this big drop. That's one approach that that certainly does work with golf. It's go with what you got and don't over think it very cool.

Yes our two of two leading sports to all right. Check me out. Thank you for that. Welcome back to the show. Our two of three great time with US. Coast to coast and around the world on the American Forces Radio Network. It's our pleasure to welcome Alexis Glick to the program. Of course you know her from a lot of her TV work as a business anchor on the Fox Nbc ALSO MSNBC. But now she is the CEO of Jenn Youth. And you think about how many kids out there rely upon their school meal which they're not getting it right now on so thereby there's a new fund called the cove in Nineteen Emergency School Nutrition Fund. Alexis thanks for being on the show. I saw the number thirty million kids. The number could be that high that this is their only meal during the day. I cannot believe the number is is that high but this is why. It's urgent to get this fun going. it is. It's remarkable and rick. Thank you so much for having me and I feel so privileged to be here with your incredible audience who who do so many selfless things on behalf of all of us and particularly the time like this but yes. The statistics are staggering. And I think the reason why folks like me who can normally sleep pretty decently tonight or having a hard time sleeping wondering if we're doing enough is because the the nature of shutting down school buildings is so unprecedented in the history of this country. And what we're recognizing what it's calling attention is. It's not that school buildings are fully closed. It's the fact that school buildings must stay. Open to feed America's kids and so I keep reminding folks that while we share out in the news at one hundred twenty four thousand schools or shutdown of which ninety eight thousand are. Us public schools. They're shut down for learning and learning his moved to digital platforms. But the reality is those ninety thousand. Us Public School buildings need to remain open to feed our nation's youth and as many as thirty million kids daily reply rely on school meals for their daily nutrition and we see the record number of furloughs and jobless claims over the last two three weeks it just demonstrates how much more of that school building is going to be needed and in this country. Frankly it's ground zero for feeding and the great equalizer and I wanted to ask you about New York too. Because you are Miss Manhattan. You grew up there. You went to Columbia. You worked on Wall Street you worked in TV there. How're we doing at Ground Zero Right? Now it's it's really. It's a really interesting thing you know. New York is the largest urban school district in the United States and You know some of the other large ones are ones. That are very familiar to you whether that's Los Angeles or or Dallas or Chicago or down in Miami date. I speak to the superintendent down there very very frequently. Look the good news is is that in large urban environments. A lot of folks are stepping up For those major schools Major School districts since they account for if you at the largest school districts in the nation they account for up to five million kids. It's a membership of about twelve of them that makes up what's called the urban school food alliance. Would we have found just to be really frank with you? As we launched just over two weeks ago a coded Nineteen Emergency School Nutrition Fund. Because while I'm a born and bred New York City Kid and we support New York City schools and New York state schools for that matter. What we do is work in school buildings in every zip code in the nation and so we'll we launched this emergency school nutrition fund. Just over two weeks ago. We gave schools the chance to apply for up to three thousand dollars or resources equipment to help them deliver meals in a safe insecure environment. And we'll tell you that I find incredibly Sobering is that what we're finding is is that the federal government or the state governments your knee Oregon and and everywhere else around the United States food gets into the school building and the federal government and state governments. Continue to support. That as you've heard the governor talk about here in the Oregon Governor's talk about across the United States. Here's the thing food getting into the cafeteria is one thing but it's the people. The frontline workers the school nutrition teams the cafeteria lady the school bus driver the volunteer and these school buildings who are taking the meal from outside the cafeteria and delivering them in a grab and go model to prevent congregation due to this pandemic. Those folks are the people that were working with on the front lines in our nation's schools across the United States. And what they're asking us for is. How can you help us get the resources? The coolers the soft sided cooler bag the sanitary equipment that we need so that we can change the mechanism of the delivery of the meal from inside the cafeteria to outside a safeway whether it's a grab and go or via school buses and so what I'll tell you about the ORC. In every other community in this country and particularly in rural communities folks are stepping up but the need is so great so when we launch this fun two weeks ago in the course of less than five days we had fifteen million dollars in requests them over five thousand schools. The numbers escalates daily It's one of the most sobering and shocking things I've witnessed in in my career. And you know when we did this. We launched a campaign With the Hashtag for school sake asking folks to raise their hands for school to help us feed our nation's kids and and what I'd like to think rick is is is threefold number one People raising their hand. We have this info graphic of of kids with our hands up with a heart in their hand. You know one. We want people to put their heart in their hand. Whatever little they can do Contribute to this fund which is now twenty five million in requests from school buildings across the United States Number One can help us. Can they go to our website to Jimmy's now dot org or text to vote with us. I'm sorry text text to help with us. We have a texting setup for schools two zero two but secondly to think those frontline workers school nutrition professionals as they had those volunteers who were standing on the front lines every single day guaranteeing that the food gets to those kids and families and a number three reminding American people that while this is happening right now during this pandemic. This situation is not going to go away months from now not too much now. The likelihood is it remains throughout the summer. It could very well impact the school building next year and frankly in America every single day. Thirty million kids rely on school meals and now with the number of families being Berlow D-. It's going to be far more than that So I pray to coming out of this. We remember the people in the school building. Who are the lifeline? Who are the connection to those kids and families and communities? Because I know we couldn't live without them And I know what they're really doing is is is God's work helping those in need very very good One last question for you. You mentioned you know governor Cuomo and president trump. We've seen with him. And you know even out here in California with Governor News some. There's of course a very much. A fractious political climate despite the fact. We're all trying to get through this together and a Lotta Times as you know and political struggles the people that bear the brunt of the The pain are the you know. The poor and the disenfranchised and the school kids who need those meals so while people fight over ventilators and masks DIS DISTASTE JEN youth. Do you get affected by these political struggles. I mean are you a above it or you right in the middle of it. You know I like to say that You know school. Buildings are truly the great equalizer It doesn't matter if you're a red state or blue state. Every single politician whether it be on Capitol Hill or at the state level recognizes that when we shut school buildings down whether it be for snowstorm or hurricane we risk kids lives by them not having access to food on those days. So what I would tell you is is that now. I say to folks because I if you're on TV regularly we can do a post mortem later on on what we did right and what. We didn't do Fast enough or what we should or could be doing. Here's the reality. When I watch people on television talk right now about one. Business is opening up. My answer is health comes first but I also my answer is is that when businesses go back to work. School buildings still remain closed. Kids still need help. And they're going to need help far longer than this pandemic and so in my in my line of work of having you know covered economies at work with pretty much the last four presidents I can tell you that you know. Put politics aside right now. This is about supporting our next generation. supporting you know kids in in rural and urban and suburban environments who need our help. And you would be surprised if you just look right in your backyard in your community There are tens of thousands if not millions of kids in need. And so what? I what I can tell you in all the conversations that I've had with our partners at the federal level our partners at the state and local levels. Everyone is rising up recognizing we need to do something. The problem is the need is so urgent and right. Now when I'm sitting here with a twenty plus million dollar deficit and requests that in weeks time could be fifty or hundred million That's what gives me Harper and we need everyone collectively to put their heart in their hand and figure out how we can help these kids how we can help these frontline workers and schools and put politics aside and recognize that we don't want any parent any caregiver in the United States waking up wondering will I be able to feed my kid the next day. It's amazing work being done of course And using your experience in your celebrity to help. We've been speaking with. Alexis Glick the genuine. Ceo for the Cove Nineteen Emergency School Nutrition Fund. Real quick. Once again people are listening. They want to help. What can they do again Alexis? Yes we would be So so deeply appreciative.

You talk about getting money's work. Money's work money's worth out of something been using those every day for eighteen years one. Eight hundred eight seven eight play you know. We might be playing sports with no fans. It looks more and more like when we get sports back. That'll be the case right. Well remember Lebron Santa Fe no fans I playing. Then they're like Lebron this is what's GonNa Happen and he's like Oh never mind but everyone's like oh it'd be creepy there'd be weird as fans would say Yeah it'd be like a regular Tuesday night against the Mariners but interesting perspective from Mr guaranteed contract himself kirk cousins. He says he loves the FANS OF MINNESOTA. But he also makes it sound like he'd be perfectly happy plan at an empty. Us Bank stadium because when you think about the NFL shifting to a virtual off-season that is going to get underway and five days even though the team facilities are closed indefinitely. We're wondering if the NFL. Of course we playing in front of them to stadium as well so the timing of the shutdown and sports has affected everyone but football and there could be no games played. We hope that's not it. But what about no fans kirk cousins said on? Espn honestly we practice every day in an empty grass area and pomp in fake crowd noise for away games but more often than not. You're used to it. Oh Ta practices. Don't have a lot of pomp and circumstance to them so honestly to just go out there and play. The game would be kind of refreshing a breath of fresh air to just let us know that we don't have to have all the smoke and the fire. We can just play football so long as we'RE PLAYING THE GAME. I won't have a lot of complaints and hopefully if it's still not return to normal we can find a way to make it work interesting. Not only does he say. No fans of be refreshing. He throws in a breath of fresh air just in case. We didn't really know what he meant by refreshing. Okay he just wants the football and the field competition at sort of like Mick shrimp in the second spinal tap drummer to spontaneously combust. He said sex drugs and rock and roll he said if I could have the sex and drugs I could do without the rock and roll so needless to say not. Everyone is going to share her cousins views on the matter and of course it had to come from somebody. Call them weird because he's not weird but he's always sort of had. This love hate relationship with his fans in DC. And I don't think there's anything wrong with the guy. I think he's a good quarterback. I've worked with people who think kirk cousins is a of space. I don't I don't think he's a guy who's going to lead the charge of brandy wine at the point of the cavalry charge with his sword out but I do think that he's better than average but I mean And Remember Lebron the quote with him. We play Games without fans now. That's impossible I playing if I ain't got fans in the crowd that's who I play for our play for my teammates and I play for the fans that's about it so if I show up to an arena and there ain't no fans I ain't playing but you can do what they want to do well and he had to backtrack on that but excuse me no cough button to hear what cousins would find it. Refreshing to lack all the pomp and circumstance. And what did you call it Smoke and fire and look. There's no doubt that it's over the top. Nba Games are an absolute assault to your senses. The stimuli coming down raining down upon you They have The guys who introduce the players have to guttural screams off in a second year from Washington. Stay mccracken flames fire. I understand it is to get you pumped up by the way the NBA had a rule that once play resumed. You can't play music. I mean you see that Major League baseball guys walkup sound songs started too late and then they kill it or hockey. The music dies. Nfl Music is an MBA. The whole time. It's just going to be I. D D wack any servant many and plenty competition waiving extradition on state of discipline dismissing. This and. It was a wraps. Just be flowing y'all when the Charlotte Hornets came in. When the other team had the ball they would play this buzzing sound like an. Charlotte team would get the ball. Team get it. You can't do that if we can. So I get it. It would be -freshing to not have the fire but no fans. Here's the thing about fans they're the ones that pay your check now. It's infinitesimal the people who scream at cops. I pay our check. I pay your salary. Kinda maybe Ninetieth of a penny comes from your taxes. But I get it so you don't want to at a time. When people have a great chance to say screw it and never come back to talk about. Be Fine without you. They're hemorrhaging money now. They're already rich. The owners are anyway but a lot of people. The money is just you know as mad magazine just to draw a dollar bill with wings on it. You know. It's just flying away and you need every fan back that you can possibly get a guy who's going to buy one ticket to one game. Please come we will miss you. And then one of your star quarterbacks just says it'd be refreshing breath of fresh air now. This is a stadium that he's in shiny brand spanking new amazing looking Viking ship there on Chicago Avenue in Minneapolis.

She'll well the element of homefield advantage. What is that predicated upon the presence of fans so I don't mean to say Kirk cousins as some sort of horrible person? I completely understand what he's talking about. These things always come out wrong because he's thinking No Fire and brimstone and we can just play. That's all I WANNA do is play but a fans gonNA take. Oh you don't want me there with my big goldilocks braids and my viking horns screw you man. I'm rectal come home.

And he's here to talk about how Kobe nineteen has affected. Our court system here in the United States but Before we get to that James. Your novel acts of Omission from Simon and Schuster is GonNa come out in paperback on June Twentieth. And this is a novel but correct me. If I'm wrong this is kind of based upon. Do I call it a historical novel on a case that you had right? Yes it's Loosely based on a trial had back in the eighties When there's a young lawyer I pick on Sued actually for legal practice. Must People consider the most famous lawyer in the country? Chris Books Highly fictionalized version of that. But it's it's That's the bones of it do you think. And you're a bay area guy like me. Are we truly the most litigious state in the union or is that kind of overblown? Oh I think that's overblown. I think it's easy for people to say things like that but every time a person calls me and talks about some devastating thing. That's happened to their family. The first thing they say is I never thought about saying I never I WANNA sue. I don't like the idea but you know our family is. We can't make it. We can't survive. What's happened to us? I know I think most people don't like the idea of a lawsuits It's you know it's it's distasteful to most of US heck. I'm a lawyer. I don't want to be so people you know. I think. Also people take a broad paintbrush to lawyers and they'll take you know like a malpractice layer like you and think that you're all ambulance chasers and you know you're just trying to get punitive and compensatory damages for anything you possibly can to make yourselves rich. That's sort of the stereotype rights. That is stereotype. Actually that was what motivated. Direct the book because I wanted people if they wanted to have a fun time really to but it has a little romance and a little fun a little danger itself like that but also get a real feeling for what a lawyer actually goes through trying to figure out. Should I take the case? What if I do take the case? What are the risks on my God? I'M GONNA have to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars And you know if I if I can't be successful for this family. They're going to be devastated in. I'M GONNA go bankrupt. You know so. It's not quite like people think Is is fun to joke about but in reality People out there trying to take anything that comes along or are usually going to have Economic disaster was there any point in the book? One of your characters maybe a dumb guy and you had a friend say that supposed to mean me. Hey yes that has happened to me if you times and people who read the book and there are some very well the characters in the book that the folks have have fun trying to figure out who they are and and and some of them are very real some of them are totally figments of my imagination and some of them are fun combinations of people. Sure so. Let's talk about how we do. The process now of jury selection which is. What's the French word for that? I forgot idea that's Vladimir so I've been on jury duties before what happens now. Did they doing it on skype? I mean we can't shut down the entire judicial system right. Well you know. Probably we didn't we didn't during any of the world wars and we didn't during the We had shut down the judicial system if they do this assist essentially ground to a halt The Supreme Court is not hearing cases the US Supreme Court The county's all over the state Here are taking different approaches to it but most of the judges are home. Shelter in place I can't get a case to move. Every jury trial in San Francisco was moved down the road ninety days. And that's just for the moment we can't pick a jury right now. People can't sit there close to each other and it's to think about you know as we come into a normal. We're not just GONNA suddenly be able to go back to life as it was. So how is that? How ARE WE GONNA? It's civil cases are one thing that's just maybe a family with a terribly brain damaged child. That's been waiting years to get the court so they can maybe maybe have some economic security and get some help now the life. That's that's a civil case. Criminal cases however always take precedence and the criminal cases because they have a right to trial by jury and they have a right to a trial a speedy trial and that always used to be weighed but defendants. Because they'd rather delay right now they don't leave it now. What are the court's GonNa do? They got us a bite him a speedy trial when we get going again. All those courts in the state are gonNA be taking care of that backlog of criminal cases and how are they going to pick a jury? Am I supposed to stand on criminal here but I think a lot of juries and am I supposed to stand up and pick a jury with a mask on my face masks under jerseys and I can't even see whether they're smiling at me or or or sneering I don't know I can't get a sense of it and that's if I'm push enough to see them with a mask on what if they're TV? What if I'm having to pick a jury you know In a in in zoom you know maybe it's Maybe that's all of a sudden. Tv has come into our programs. It's a very strange thing You know when we we try a jury case jurors get to sit there you know. They're all from all over the community and they put their commonsense together commonsense decisions. That's what's the beauty of the system. People don't want to sit there and spend their time but when they get a chance to actually do it they usually find. It was a fabulous fabulous experience. And how are they supposed to do it now? They can't talk to each other when they can't see the witnesses when they can't get up close and personal you know. I don't know yeah a couple more questions. For Attorney James Boss Swick author of acts of emission. You we always hear even before this that there's a backlog of cases. How many times have you run into the person who said look? I know the Supreme Court has some pressing issues but the injunction on my neighbor's barking dog. Hostile take precedent over everything. In fact I insist on it. Well they can just all they want. That doesn't need the court's GonNa listen any more than the listen to me if I've worried about some cases of minded really really should have you know maybe I have a lady. That's a dying of cancer and she's only got a few months to get a Taser The courts the best they can and they're way underfunded in our system and now unfortunately but everything has happened. They're going to be more underfunded. The courts are doing the best. They can But the guy the ones that adjunction for the dog barking and you better tuck his neighbor and get a bark collar. Well I know you you you know. Everybody needs that. They don't need to step up but it's nice to see people step up the whole. Think Globally Act locally. Whatever you can do to help even if you're just checking in on a neighbor but you're saying that lawyers can reduce the impact of cove. Nineteen in fact. You've identified six things. James yes well. There's lots of things that we can do. I think the most important thing we can do is all work together. You know to help everybody understand that. This thing is working and we can't just lead up on it I mean I'm sitting at home. I'd rather be in the office. I had been in the office for weeks when I go out to the store for my wife. I have a mask on and gloves. Kind of stupid. That's why we're doing so well in California and we can't i. I'm afraid we can't let up on it. Yeah we can all help each other and and the and the lawyers can help the courts and the courts help now. They need lawyers the US about how to process all this stuff and the lowest can help each other because although we're adversaries in fact you know we all are professionals and we're all What they call officers the court and we all have the same needs and they all have the same. Desire is to have the system work fairly our clients and they haven't worked smoothly and and not to have justice delayed. The old saying justice delayed justice. Have you ever been held in contempt of court? And if not what was the closest you ever got no no? I haven't good Lord. I often pack a toothbrush in my briefcase. No I haven't but once in a while and and rarely do this because of the judges the Master. They had the black robe and their charge. Even if you don't necessarily agree with doing once in a while you just have to disagree and once in a while you have to say and I come close a couple of times. Thank goodness not very often. 'cause most judges you know are have been. Smart. That's why they're there. They know that they better listen Because the lawyers job is to help their second stake. Have you ever thought about being a judge or you? Don't WanNA take the pay cut. Lord you know I. It would be a pickup. That's true I don't think they're paid nearly enough for what they do. They work really hard I if a lot of stress They have they have to make decisions. That Wannstedt not easy job People take well the power thing you know. They have a lot of power. Yes that's true but with the power goes to the decision making and people's lives are GonNa depend on what you do I don't envy that and And I respect what they do last question and I'm sure prosecutors and criminal attorneys get this bar threaten you like? Us Ob ruined everything for me. I'll have my revenge that type of thing. You hear that some other lawyers. No have you ever heard that from anybody in your career. Why I I've I've heard it. I've seen it on the faces. People have process examined circling And you know when things haven't worked out well for the attendant But no because that's that's the beauty of our system. It is a balanced system. Everybody gets they get their shot. They get their chance. And and and probably that's the only weakness in the system is that people don't have as much you know we have legal aid We have You Know Public Defenders. But they're way underfunded it. We really we need healthcare but we need to find the the safety net in the judicial system and the justice system for the people that can't get access that really needs to be funded and that has to be a. I think that's critical You know that's something hours on. Yeah no I hear you. We've been speaking James. Boswell make sure to check out his novel.

He's so wonderful lighting sports with Rick tittle his key so handsome Giza genius. A thank you so much and welcome back to the show with you. All over North America and the American forces radio network worldwide. It's great to welcome to the show former astronaut. Mike Massimino and he's here to talk about the science channel is going to have a really cool thing on Sunday at eight o'clock Pacific and Eastern as well. It's called Hubbell thirty years of discovery about the Hubble telescope which Mike worked on and he also has a book called spaceman. The true story of young boys journey to becoming an astronaut. Mike thanks for being on the show. And I remember you know and I was in college and Letterman joke. About how the Hubble telescope they paid all this money and it broke and I guess one of the mirrors was off. Just you know Infinitesimal Amount. But everything was blurry and we had to go up there and fix it and I guess on the one hand it was a disaster but it also showed that you know people could go up there and actually fix. It was a great challenge that was overcome. So what was that like for you when you got to go up there and work on it Thanks for having me. I really appreciate that. Yep in speak with you on The What you describe as what how? I kinda fun house in Graduate School when When the Hubble was launched in Brickley discovered that it couldn't see very well and was a big embarrassment for the country I could attack the taxpayers. Who paid for the NASA specially was kind of under the gun was very looking forward to what it would show us and it didn't really show us very much in the visible light spectrum. Couldn't see very well because as you said there was just a an aberration. The MUIR was off just grounding correctly. Big Mirror that is needed in in the telescope to to to get those images and it was less than the size of a human hair with. That's how small that aberration was the manufacturing problem but it says really caused a terrible effective consumer very much with the telescope and also the regret. I repair mission Happened three years after that first launch and they basically gave the telescope classes they put in an instrument that could refocus the like just like glasses refocuses delight or contact lens. Refocuses the light correctly into your eyes. You can see correctly if you're nearsighted farsighted and Work Great and That was the first story submission. There were four more following. I was on the final two of those so you mentioned that we heard about this. Well before it was with NASA about the telescoping its problems and and it was fixed and that was a great a great victory on a successor NASA be overcome that problem and then actually be involved with. The mission was pretty cool for me. Yeah and the whole concept I guess was for lay. People is that we can only see so much from our light. Buckets are telescopes on earth. We need to get beyond the atmosphere. We need to get something out there. And once it was fixed all the things they could do like three being dark matter but then finding out the age of the universe some. What does it thirteen point? Eight billion years old. It's it's amazing what this thing has brought in and for you fixing it. That meant spacewalking. I mean can you even describe what spacewalking like to the rest of us? Yeah it's It's the coolest thing I've ever done In what you're doing is getting outside of the spacecraft in your in your own spacer like you're almost in your own you really are in your own little space Spaceship because you're going to go out into the vacuum of space where there's no air no pressure high radiation micrometeorites possibilities And you need to be protected from all that in the temperature differences between Son and colder extreme. So you need to get comfortable. You get a sunrise set when you're in orbit Every forty five minutes go around the planet seventeen thousand five miles an hour. Now you're in your own little spaceship your spacesuit doing it and Any every every ninety minutes to do one lap at that speed when orbit and have visited some light and darkness. And that's where you get temperature extremes quite frequently every forty five minutes to go through a change but it says extraordinary the opportunity to get out there and be able to look wherever you want when you're inside the spaceship and you get to space. You look outside and see the earth and the stars. That's really cool. But then you're out there in that environment I would say a couple of things one is. Is that it In algae might be looking at an aquarium going to an aquarium with your family or kids and looking out looking at the FA- oh look at the pretty fish. Isn't that nice and then becoming a scuba diver you now? You're interacting with that environment. That's what I thought. Looking through the window spaceships kind of like almost like looking at an aquarium. Pretty and then when you go the space look you're interacting with that environment and then where we were at Hubble We were one hundred miles higher than where the shuttle would normally fly space stations at two hundred fifty miles up at three hundred fifty miles up. So we got to see more of the curve of the planet Which is extraordinary. Don't see it as much. But you see the curvature of our planet from that from that altitude and it's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. Our planet is really beyond words to describe its beauty. I felt like I was looking into an absolute paradise and I feel very lucky to be here. Absolutely amazing and We're speaking with Mike. Massimino about The shell hobble. Thirty years of discovery is going to be on the science channel on Sunday. The Books Baseman. The true story of young boys journey to becoming an astronaut And by the way the micro meteorite you're talking like a space bullet. I never even thought about something like that. Flying around on going so fast. No matter if he had anything going at that speed you're gonNA know about it. And the Hubble itself Has Been Hit. And there's a a high gaining ten which is a a a dish like a satellite dish on the telescope has got a hole about the size of a golf ball that went through it. And it's been hit. We took off One of the instruments had a radio that was exposed to space for many years. I look like somebody had taken a BB gun to that. All these little impact craters in it so things get hit. You hopeful those things. Don't come when you're out there been so far. We've been lucky in that area. No doubt do you think it's probably I dunno fascinating that you're you might be more famous than Neil Armstrong to some teenagers. Because you're the first human being to ever tweet from space. Yeah. I don't think I'm more famous than meal. I mean yeah maybe pushing it there maybe you think of a few other astronauts yeah the tweets space it also has the connection with Neil. I'm sure I when I when I first met me along strong. The new astronaut. I asked him. Do you remember what he said on the Middle? You've heard what he said. Right is survey one small step for man one chine leap for mankind. And I asked him. I first met him. I had to come up with that. And he said I gotTa tell you to say that. How did you come up with that? And he said that thesis Mike and I didn't think about until after I landed on the moon and I said really said Yeah 'cause 'cause the finding land on the moon no reason to say anything and he told me what he use it as a as a teaching lesson he said. Mike you know this new to this business but you know you gotta stick to business. I worry about all that other stuff later and I said okay I got it and so years later. The first week from space and and people who've been press was asking what are you going to tweet and so I said don't worry about it until they get there and so that's what I did. I didn't think about until I got to orbit opened up the computer and I looked at the computer and I thought to myself. That was the worst advice I've ever gotten my life. I should have thought something I I started doubting my hero. How did he come up with that thing? There's no way he came up with that on the moon. I'm only pulled around. Its base. I can't think about the right. So I just blurted out. Something launch was awesome. They make fun of me on Saturday. Night live by kids like that. So that's part of yes. I was the first guy tweet from space. Take that you know. I'm sure yeah and I guess if it was a real tweet you you could be the first we put you up. You know you could put some good last question for you as you wanted to be an astronaut Your whole life. Did you ever have a moment like oops I actually am one like you know when the space shuttle's launching or you're outside you like you know maybe? I maybe I didn't want to be an astronaut after all or was it all just a gravy for you know it was a it was a cool job is one of the few times where like something you dream about. Absolute is up to be in a school. Better it's just awesome and I think you know being a professional athlete or doing things like you get to do a radio show or something something that you dream about doing then you get to do it being an astronaut's right up there. I just loved it but I tell you what I described this in my book When I got out to the launch pad my very first flight It was a night launch And so we got out there in about two or three. Am about three am. We arrived at the launchpad whole areas is clear because they put fuel in the tank just a few hours before they clear the area. I'd never been around a space shuttle. That was fueled before when I feel that. Everyone's kind of happy and a lot of people around once they feel that they they get everybody out there because you basically have a bomb sitting there a little bit too close to. Disneyworld so like everyone got it away. So it's deserted. Is Doc the space shuttle's all it up and ready to go all the support structure is now gone. And what you see spacious fueled and it's so coming off of it which is just water vapor but it's smoke coming off the top of this thing and because of those cold temperatures. The cryogenic eulogies very cold temperature fuel. It's like bending the groaning of the metal and the pumps. It was making these unworldly noises like it was alive and it looked like a beast and rick. That was the time that I thought after all those years about going to space. Since I was a little kid I thought to myself. Maybe this wasn't such a good idea. So that's what that was the moment ice. No mainly should have thought about thought this through a little bit more. But certainly that's when that's when it hit me but by that point it was too late it was like I couldn't change my mind as I know. You gotta go great stuff and WANNA remind everybody. It's going to be a great two hour special about the remarkable story about Hubble and about how people who thought of it made it and people who worked on it like our guest Anne Mike Massimino. Make sure to check it out. It's going to be Sunday at eight. Pm On the Science Channel and also pick up his book space man the true story of young boys journey to becoming an astronaut and remember. He did compare being an astronaut to being a radio so I will take that. Thanks a lot man. I appreciate it. Let'S CATCH UP SOON. All right like rick thanks. Thanks for covering it and Then thanks for.

Boy I'll tell you that you want to go. I'm not it already. Thank you for that and welcome back to the show rectal with you all album round the you know the draft. Aren't you gonNA talk about lawyers? No no the draft I wanNA talk about the MLB mock draft to and some real strangers in there but there could be some surprises in the strap. In fact I guarantee it. There will be some weird surprises. Joe Boroughs going to be number one and then who? The heck knows what's going to happen. What do we know? That's the only certainty if the dolphins aren't convinced that to healthy and they might pass on him at five. We know things like that. But what about one where we all go would go and I think that moment will happen if Jordan love is drafted ahead of Justin herber. Now you might say that's not going to happen. His measurable Cz are off the charred. You can't even measure them. Apparently Herbert by the way has spent his entire life in Eugene Oregon and some people say wherever he goes it's going to suck 'cause he's GonNa be Homesick. I'm like that's really a harsh indictment on anyone who's never got out of their hometown the plenty of stars of stage and screen. That never wrote an aeroplane until they hit it. Big Is that but Herbert at the senior ball said that. Nfl team say we need more leadership from you. So if you wanted to get up the science kit with the Petri dishes and the Bunsen burners and the test tubes you could start saying Brand NEW CITY. The expectations of being a franchise quarterback top ten pick. And you have to be a leader is not going to happen. That's that's a bit much. It could be too much to ask of love as well. I mean love has had to deal with adversity for the entirety of this last season. In fact we only saw glimpses of his potential last year it was his twenty eighteen campaign that put him in this first round conversation last fall and so we all kind of looked at him and but listen. Both love and Herbert will probably have to city year. Well you'd like them to sit here. Like Patrick Mahomes like jared. Goff like whomever but there are going to be scouts. That are going to say. I know this guy that was in the PAC twelve and this guy was in the boonies but Jordan love is the guy to take. That could be one of the curb. Balls another one. I saw a rumor. That the raiders were going to trade up to take seizing Henderson. He's a good corner. There's NO DOUBT JEFF. Okuda will be the top corner in this draft and it's not even close as I said it's perceived value. We'll see how it all fleshes out but right now it's not close. It's him and then everybody else. He's the total package. He's they say stronger. Version a tougher version of Marshon lattimore. Who was also a Buckeye first rounder but CJ Henderson the number two corner in the class? Apparently it's not even close there so it's Okuda no one's close Henderson. No-one is close at three. He checks every box. He ran a sub four four. He had an amazing season as well. The big knock on him is that he can't tackle very well but he's great at covering well. I mean there are a lot of guys that can't tackle very well who are great wash and say a lot. But they're guys who made money Daryl Durell Rivas couldn't tackle very well beyond sanders couldn't tackle very well nominee couldn't tackle and he couldn't guard people either there for a while pulling the wool over All our eyes but you know if you see him go in the top ten the Jaguars had nine would be one if they decide to address offensive line in the second first round. Pick which would be twenty over. All the Panthers Take Henderson at seven. If Derrick Brown off the board we can even see the chargers pull the trigger at six but as I said these will be surprises. The chargers are to draft a quarterback. I said the That the raiders will trade up from twelve. I believe and I would bet money. That Henderson will be there at twelve. And I don't know if they take him or not but remember they got Trayvon Molin in the second round. One thing that Mike Mayock was saying he was addressing. The press yesterday was he says there could very well be a number one ride receiver on day two and he said in the third round he said we have thirty. Three third round picks. And it's like stealing. It's not like stealing when you consider that. The raiders have sucked and have given away amazing talent to get those picks wouldn't say stealing but he says if we do our job right. We'll get three starters. Well that would be tremendous if they could do that. The guy they're talking about who could be that person would be Michael Pittman who's rated as the Tenth Best Wide Receiver. But we talk about him. The same way we talk about Terry maclaurin. Aj Brown or decay metcalf. None of those guys were first round picks but they all play the isle outplayed and kill Harry and Marquess Brown. Pittman is six foot four. He makes acrobatic catches so he could be one of those guys. Let's go to Charlie and New York City. I got a couple minutes. What's up man? Hey be real quick I Regarding the draft that was looking at Latest mock because that's all. I have to do now during the day other than looking for zombies. Mel Kiper had the raiders taken Henderson with the Twelfth Pick and then and love with the nineteenth pick. He didn't have in taking a receiver. Maybe thinking that this is such a deep draft for receiver as they would take someone later on. I guess My question to you is regardless of who they I think they're gonNA take a receiver with it's called pick in fact nineteen to or love are still there and they don't take either of them and they go with Whichever a linebacker or someone else would you be disappointed. I wouldn't be disappointed You know in a perfect world I would have to take to overload. He's more accomplished. But I think Mike. Mayock was kind of setting the scene for maybe doing something like that and passing on a wide receiver on day one because I mean. Cd Lamb. Jerry Judy Henry Rugs Justin Jefferson. They're all GonNa go in the first round. But if you look at Brandon you got to Arizona State who I love. I just mentioned Pittman. The viscous Chanel. He might be a late first round pick but there's jalen Rieger Denzel mims Cagey Kamler. There's some great wide receivers in there. That could end up being that. Terry maclaurin are the decay mccafe. Jay Brown guys from Ole miss that it could be that type of thing so I was thinking if it goes to be their third round. Because raiders don't have any second context you pick someone of that ilk will be there in the third round for the raiders. Yeah Yeah I have no doubt I mean. They can package to threes to move into the second round if they really are. They're really in love with a guy but With three threes may says he wants to get three stars out of it. So it's going to be intriguing for sure. Charlie I gotta run take care take care all right good stuff. That's Charlie in New York City one. Eight hundred eight seven eight play.

Eight hundred eight seventy play. You're GonNa talk about telescopes now right now but taking a look through our telescopes to Formosa or the kids. Call it Tilana. We have baseball going on right now in the Chinese Professional Baseball League and They were supposed to have their opening day March fourteenth and they moved it up to April eleventh and so it opened on Saturday and then it was postponed due to rain but we did get some baseball in on Sunday. So even with the delay the Empty Stadium and as I said the stands filled with. They're not sex dolls. I don't think mannequins The rackets and monkeys also had robot fans as well which I think is pretty cool. Is there ever been a team called the monkeys? Hey we're the monkees. Peter Tork Maki Dolan's and Davy Jones just pulled all four of those behind but There's no team called the monkeys. It just doesn't really work in America. That name but the rackets in monkeys even with that delay the game between China. Trust brothers and the UNI president seven eleven. Lions was a welcome sight. I think for baseball fans. But let's just go back. I already forgot how weird the name Chinatrust brothers are. Because after that I said you need president seven eleven lions chinatrust. I'M GONNA go out on a limb and say a bank but the brothers that would not work in America. Say Brothers Yeah. It just would not work. But it's not enough that seven eleven sponsors a team uni-president whatever that is both of them. Uni President seven eleven ham fighter lions and sell. If you want to take a closer look at ways Chi Wang Chang. An outfielder with they just call them. The UNI lions. He hit the first home run of the season in the first inning. And that means he hit the world's first meaningful Homerun in twenty twenty and it was off the foul pole which is pretty cool. Now kiling chain goes by Kevin because we look at it kai-wen Kevin he goes by Kevin Chang. A fun coincidence. The pitcher who served it up was none other than Arielle Miranda Miranda thirty one years old and he was a relief pitcher for the mariners. He was a starter for the Orioles. He's been in forty four big league games as era just under five The last two years he had been playing in Nippon Professional Baseball that of course would be Japan and their two leagues the Pacific League and Essentially There were you see a headline saying the brothers rally. What Brunner's CAL ripken? But now Chang's home run gave us obviously the unions one. Nothing lead but it didn't stay that long because the brothers tied the game and the fourth when Su Chen Chan provided own solo. Home run if I was Chinese. I want that would be my first. Name T. Z. You Hyphen H. S. I. E. N. Shin Chan Chan had his own home run and they tweeted out and a lot of of obviously it was in Chinese characters but in Hashtag brothers. Never give up. Hope you don't give up in the fourth when you're down one nothing but that long ball was also off Ryan. Fear of End Ryan fear ban the knuckleballer who pitched with the mariners the rangers and the Blue Jays. Now this is a guy who played in thirty three games. Ziara was seven point three or four in the bigs and I remember him very well because I was doing the as game against the mariners at the call. Siyam was a night game probably like a Friday night or maybe it was. Maybe it was a Saturday night games to be a lot of Saturday night games but I was doing the game and I told people that fear band in German is fire. Bent Bent is means evening. Fighter abend in German just means quitting time that means the work is over. It's just a catchphrase for no more work and years later. I saw some disc- discuss online. But I saw some kind of discussion. And somebody said well Rick tittle was the guy who taught me that fighter. Ahmed means quitting time. So it stuck with someone but you know they anglicized and so F E I e R abnd this fear so now I know Ryan File. Aubin is now. He pitches for the unions but defense matters because the game remained one to one in the sixth inning. Oh brothers don't quit. Do the lion's any base runner was going to be significant and brothers First Baseman Way. Ta Su didn't get the memo because he got picked off first base. What they really pretty back. Pick from a lefty as well done down by the Pitcher Chen. Chong you but the lions did Prevail Marathon Kinda eleven innings victorious by four to one and this game lasted four and a half hours. So that's the kind of thing like I can't wait till baseball's back. I can't wait till baseball's back you get two four fifteen in that game. You're like I'm so sick of baseball. That's like almost every raider game except for a couple of seasons but almost every raider game when they move back twenty five years ago now. They're gone again but I'd be so excited to go whether it was with my dad and my brothers around a credential whatever and I'd get there and we'd be down twenty one to nothing in the second quarter and I'd be like I wanna go home so bad right now. That's not every game almost every game. I'm like I hate it here. It sucks but it's just because mostly they were losing but baseball is back baby and that's a cool thing now the mock draft for remember rolling and a half five rounds and I was like looking at the baseball mock draft because and by the way. Mlb can push the backdraft from June tenth. Original Start Day to his latest July twentieth. The expectation is that teams will get at least one month's notice for the exact day they're going to have it and there is some hope that they will get to ten rounds but still five is the most likely scenario the bonus pools and the individual slot are going to be the exact same from last year and then players will only see receive one hundred k. Upfront you talked about that. They'RE GONNA get the rest of their bonuses. July first twenty twenty one July first twenty twenty two. So don't buy your own private island just yet. The draft was supposed to take place in Omaha to coincide with the college world series. It's not going to happen. So it's going to be held in secaucus at the studios mood susie cell. Look it's GonNa be hard but you know we have enough data. We need to find out sign ability and and those other things the GM of the Tigers said. I would say that we have a good history from last year to the present day as far as seeing players. I know we already have a full list of all the guys that are pertinent to the draft for us obviously like to see them play more but I would say if the draft were tomorrow. We'd be prepared for sure now unlike unlike a NHL and NBA. I should say there's no lottery just like football. You Go. And Order of the previous standings you can't trade picks except for those compensatory picks the Tigers. Obviously you lose one hundred eleven games and twenty nineteen and you have the number one pick. You're GONNA have it. It's the third time to try. It has had the top pick. They had it in twenty eighteen. They took the Auburn. Righty Casey Mayes. Remember Ninety Seven. They had it. They took the rice closer Matt Anderson. All first round picks are protected from a free agent compensation nowadays the teams give up later draft picks and internal bonus or international bonus money to sign qualified free agents instead so despite that the Astros do not have a first or second round. Pick this year. We know that my question is do the Red Sox do. They have their bonus money and their pool. Money ready to go. Yes does not have first and second round next year as well as part of the science dealing scandal the s but each team is given bonus pool Monday for draft spending each summer and the penalties for excessive. Spending are harsh enough and what it is is tax on average forfeiting for future first rounder. And there's other things that go up but the bonus pool effectively acts as soft salary cap. So the five largest bonus pools going into the draft. Assuming it's five round draft Auriol's Tigers Tiger's royals marlins pirates and you would say you know. Three of those teams are either small marketing but the orioles and the Detroit Tigers both have over thirteen million dollars now. The old hold the Orioles hold the the second overall pick and if you think about and they have the highest competitive balanced pick as well which is going to be thirty because now the astros are out so By the way the Astros their bonus pool two point one million two point one million. That was another penalty. They have so you talk about Sign Ability. This might actually help the astros because in a normal year you like all my gosh whatever you WANNA do. Don't get drafted by Houston. Wait I thought they were the young up and coming team going to world series winning world series. Yeah but now they don't have any cash so you don't WanNa get drafted by them. So undrafted free agents the most. You can pay them to come to. Your team is going to be twenty K now previously. They could get up to one hundred. Twenty five thousand dollars so we don't know the exact date just yet but we know that's you know look amateur. Baseball is shut down the draft class. It is I hate saying it is what it is but it is not going to change. The player cannot change their stock unless they get hurt. Now I guess if you put a video out there where you're doing some guys do or they're you know jumping backwards over six school buses. Wow we didn't know athletic but all you can do now is hurt your draft status. You should be like Kobe. Beef and You know in a Hammock a net somewhere. Now tomorrow. I'm going to get into the mock. Yes Shirley Him. I'M GONNA get into a mock about what just may go down in the draft.

You need you're listening to wrestling observer life with Bryan Alvarez and Mike Vivey on the sports byline Broadcasting Network Meghan The show Brain Elber is here Wrestling Observer Live Mexican reveals wrestling observer dot com started beginning here due to the uncertain economic situation directly impacting them and other media businesses in the wake of the corona virus pandemic wgn's changes to their staffing executive compensation packages and more on. Wednesday news delivered to employees on a brief twelve eastern conference call followed by the company sitting at a press release in the release said. They conducted an analysis of operations over. The last several weeks identified some areas in which they will see short-term cost reductions and cash flow improvement those areas reducing executive and board member compensation. I guess we'll see which executives get their pay cut in which do not decreasing operating expenses cutting talent expenses third party staffing and consulting deferring spend on the build out of the company's new headquarters for at least six months and layoffs and furloughing a person of their a portion of their workforce immediately that includes. It says some of the talent roster. We're going on. I believe almost twenty five individuals between talented agents furloughing employees a suspension and work without pay for a period of time versus a permanent layoff has been a constant since the economic impact of the pandemic released started hitting the call itself said the last roughly five minutes with McMahon dancing several of the details above and then employees will receive text messages about their standing with the company. Wbz The chain. We'll save them four dollars a month or four million dollars a month. I apologize gave them a cash flow improvement of one hundred and forty million dollars. Mainly from the deferral and spending their new offices release also said the company has approximately five hundred million dollars in cash and debt capacity to help them manage through the crisis. I'm not sure if that made the talent feel better. They've got five hundred million dollars in cash and debt capacity to manage them through the crisis and meanwhile they act going on twenty five people. Now McMahon suspended operations of the XFL last week league filed for bankruptcy on Monday next investors call happens to be one week from now April. Twenty third in the wake of is announcement. This is the list and by the way I got to refresh this right now because I believe that there have been more since we started the show. This is the current list of everybody who has been released from. Wwe Today Drake Maverick. Who was scheduled to be in the interim cruiserweight championship tournament and apparently will still be in the tournament but he has been released. Curt Hawkins has been released. Carl Anderson and Luke gallows who just signed new deals big deals by the way they have been released. Luke EC. Three has been released. Leah Rush Eric. Young Heath slater so not all of three. Mvp will be winning the championship. Anytime soon. Eight an English Kurt Angle has been released. Sarah Logan Mike. Keogh to WHO has been there for thirty years referee Mike. Yoda has been released. Eric Rowen Primo epic. Oh Mike Canales and in terms of agents backstage Billy Kidman Mike Rotunda ironically on April fifteenth. Irs was released. Dave Finlay Pat Buck. Shaun Davey Scott Armstrong. Sarah Stock Shane Helms and Lance storm all either furloughed or gone from. Wwe Now people have been told that there is a possibility that when everything turns around they will be rehired but nobody knows anything. And so I think some of these names are likely to be brought back in terms of the agents. I mean obviously. They're running shows at the performance center and I don't think that when they open back up again you're going to need your agents if you're gonna run things the way. They used to run them so I wouldn't be surprised if many of these names ended up being brought back as far as the wrestlers. I look at some of these names. And Karl Anderson Luke gallows I mean they were out there on the Wrestlemainia show in the alleged main event just a couple of weeks ago and others I mean EC three dropped off the face of the earth and you know an English was doing commentary. I mean they're going to need commentators when they come back. Epica Primo. We haven't seen them forever. Eric Rohan I mean. They were kind of pushing that guy for a while so. I would not be surprised if some of these individuals were brought back but it seems to me likely that many of them will not be brought back so in addition all of that there is more interesting things going on so trump is met with a bunch of industry leaders in the sports industry and they are tempting to reopen the economy and so Dana White and Vince. Mcmahon are among those that will be involved in trump's great American economic revival Industry Group. He joins a Roger Goodell for example from the NFL and Jay Monahan of the PG but what they are going to do is attempt to find a way to reopen sports and reopened the economy. Part of that involves Dana White running shows in Las Vegas starting in May white issued a statement of righty saying. Ufc plans of producing fights out of its apex facility in Las Vegas. Starting in May I presume he is just just presuming that in fact at the end of April Las Vegas can open up again. I don't think there's any guarantee that Las Vegas is opening up again at the end of. May but he seems to think it is and if not he can go to Florida which has been opened up to professional wrestling mixed martial arts. Basically any sport that has national television is now considered an essential business in Florida. So what is interesting about that is if I could find it here. Where are we here as you find that I'll go ahead and add the ES GOP Unsurprisingly Maria Analysis? Now Murray has been got at her with Mike Bennett. So okay so I'll find this year but there's been an invest at an investigation is the right word but obviously when this whole thing came about where. Wwe was allowed to run in Florida. there was a lot of talk about how in the world they able to run in Florida when Florida's shutdown. How did they all of a sudden become a An essential business and I can find this here. We go here. We go Florida Governor Rhonda.

People who've purchase tickets will be issued a full refund within thirty days. We've also got the ratings from Monday. Night so mike and I were debating whether this could fall any lower and in fact I was spot on Mike virtually identical to two weeks ago the show one point one nine million of viewers lowest in modern history by the previous record. One point nine two million for the go home show Wrestlemainia this now. Two weeks after Wrestlemania one point nine one million viewers. What was amazing about this number? There were two amazing things about this number number one. Every hour did less than two million viewers. That's the first amazing thing that I don't think that's ever happened. Before the second amazing thing was they had how this rating held up is why I think that this is the bottom of the barrel. The first hour one point nine nine million the second hour point nine one million and the third hour one point eight three million so they barely lost viewers over three hours. And I know that Dave believes well. You GotTa look at. What was the lowest third hour of all time? Because that's the bottom of the barrel. I don't believe that because that final number in our three is people who watched and they slowly gave up throughout the show. So what happened here was people started and this is the bottom of the barrel and so they watch and a couple of people tuned out the two now they fell asleep whatever and we ended up with a very very stable number so I guess it could fall a little bit below this but I think that this is. This is the number of people that are going to watch W era during a pandemic in front of no fans. I I disagree but not vigorously just because I tend to lean a little bit more towards Dave on that one in that I think it was like one. I can't remember. I had no around Christmas time. They had a third hour. That was like a one six and look as long as there's a bottom on a barrel there's never the bottom of barrel until it completely drops out and you see zero so. I know what you're saying. But what if next week it starts around one point nine million one million like the second week and then? Paul is a one point eight and then follows the one point six. This could continue to slip especially if some news breaks on Monday. So I'm not saying I'm like I'm not putting this on the quality of the show even that like well because what? They're putting on his so bad in front of the empty arena. It's going to continue to nosedive but there's other factors that I kind of consider into play here on top of the fact that they just keep slowly atrophying and and falling away with this number just because they are getting down to the absolute nubs as far as what they have is viewership spurs says Crazy Finley and Kidman. Were both there since the death of. Wcw that's right. There are a lot of very longtime employees and independent contractors here have been released and like. I said there's no guarantee that these people aren't going to be brought back because I mean they're going to run shows again someday and they're going to need agents now one one detail here. Is that before all of this started? Before any of this hit they had already drastically reduced. The number of how shows so drastically reducing how shows than there is a chance that some of these these agents producers they will not be brought back but when the when the country opens up again and people are flying all over again and W is running shows in different locations. They are going to need agents. That's how they run business. And so you know I have people asking right here always is Lance. GonNa come back to the site is is is Jerry. Do Twenty two straight podcast now with these people. I don't know if all of these people are going to be going out there and doing a whole bunch of interviews and doing whatever for two reasons number one my guess is that many maybe all of them are GonNa Have Ninety Day. No compete clauses. And I don't think if you're doing your ninety day no compete. You're going to be rushing out to be doing interviews or anything like that and also I mean this is. This is what happened when when. Wcw went out of business. I mean a lot of people. Just they stuck around and they kept quiet because they hoped that they were going to get a job with W and it was like that for several years. And you know everybody knows the rules and my guess is that many of them are going to lay low and they're going to hope that you know three or four months down the road maybe by the fall maybe by Christmas time w e will start hiring all of these people back again. That's that's mine. I think some of them will be hired back but as I noted their names on this list that promote EPICA I mean. When was the last time we stop Freeman EPO? I mean it's been years so my guess. Is THEY PROBABLY WON'T BE BROUGHT BACK? But given how much and I don't know the exact amount okay but gallison. Anderson signed a big money deal and a lot of people reciting big-money deals because w e didn't want anyone going to aid. W and so. I find it hard to believe that when things opened up again. They're not GonNa want to hire these people right. Back Zack Ryder. You can now add to that list to officially joined the list of people who have been cut and you know guys like Pat Buck especially you know who just got hired by them. Not all that long ago to be a producer. Yeah and the producers. Because how they're going to do business probably philosophically with. Vince isn't going to change. So you're GONNA have a lot of producers and things like that and also you know it shouldn't be forgotten even though we're going through all these big names that are on this list. How many production people? How many of those independent contractors that you name that do piece work for them and those sorts of people who don't have the big names are going to be out of jobs and be furloughed and be outright cut loose and that's something also we should remember with a lot of these names that are coming out to that are being bandied about where they. GonNa get job. Where's this person? Getting land boy is a whole lot of other. People are landing spots to. Who Don't have these big names? This person years says simple question with wrestling being declared an essential business in Florida and Awa open to working with available talent. That is close to them would awa taping and Jacksonville and bringing some of the recently released. Wbz talent with some of them also residing in Florida or is alien planning on taking advantage of the essential business ruling lay W is taped through the middle of May so I guess if they wanted to. They could scrap all of those tapes and go back and go live but. I don't think there's any need to do that. They're not seem to be any problem. Between TA W in terms of live versus taped. And obviously one of the main reasons that Vince is going live Monday Wednesday Friday. Is this belief that has not been confirmed that if he does not go live they're going to lose out on their television money and I I mean there was no mentioned this on on the conference. Call or anything like that. I mean it's it's all speculation and as I've noted I mean a w seems to be doing just fine with tape shows. You know if if Florida opens up and all of a sudden Awa was going live next week and they scrap all those tapings then. Hey that'd probably be an indication that TNT wants them to go live but it doesn't appear that that is the case now come may fifteenth. It looks like they'll be able to tape in Jacksonville or wherever. And whether or not they use any of those W stars. I don't know as I've mentioned a a million times. You know the Kahn family owns a w but contrary to some people's belief there is not an ATM. Eric this is not. Hey we have. We have unlimited money to sign every single person that we want to. Hey W is working on a budget and they are not going to exceed that budget. They're going to stick to that budget. And yes they will have. They will have room for some people but they will not have room for everybody or even most people and they're trying to run it as a business with the goal being to make money off wrestling operations and the way that the business set up and with the new TNT DEAL. They will be making money off wrestling operations most likely by next year. They've they've they signed a new television deal. They've kept within their talent budgets. They haven't had a cancel house shows because cove in nineteen because they never ran. How shows They'll they'll probably be taking. I mean they're taking a hit on live gate for television every week but I mean they they appear to be doing okay right now. I mean that could change anytime but They are. They are trying to run an operation that can make money off the operation and not you know rely entirely on. Wbz's not relying entirely in Saudi Arabia but that Saudi money is big money and losing out on that Saudi money. I mean the last time there was an issue with that to stock. Took a huge hit. So anyway we gotta do break back in a moment with the eighty e w world heavyweight champ defending his title tonight against the big hurt Jon Moxley Wrestling Observer.

Are you feeling a little bit too much hair? She feeding you. Are you ready for tonight? Things I'm not going to solve anybody's intelligence. Listening program and actress Bachelor will be live tonight. You'll obviously see them as tasting Jacksonville some three weeks ago and it was a pretty Pretty satisfied with this little piece of work that will tonight. A misguided for research shows like Game Day is weird doing empty arena together. You don't get that instant CPAC whether you know that was October. Not because there's no there's nobody in. The building is less than people sitting home three. Just wait for this thing. There you know feels like finally get to sit and watch the ones that I was on the couch by myself and You know nobody's seen it yet so I haven't got any feedback or whatever but I did was voice over by the Great Jim. Ross best time. They said After he watched it and voice over except me and Was GOING TO SAY SLAG. It's not on slicks. Jake testing said. It made me proud to be in this business. I think better pretty good sign that a lot of people are going to enjoy. Tonight's what has that been like for you? I mean it's got to be bizarre to sit down and watch yourself on Wednesday. Have you been doing that if you've been watching it or have you been doing something else and then watching later? How is this all been working out as far as the schedule in going back to watch the show? Is it something you do every week usually have? How does that work especially right now? Support like I'll watch anything that's on. Tv Man frigging raw data view. Whatever I know W. I duNno Florida's L. O. Watched sit down and watch it. You know so acts like a just a tad emptier anything south so like we've all been trying to figure out how to do this the best way right and to figure it out and we'll try and different things you know. There's there's no stands that takes energy of the arena which is critical elements. And throw that thing away so a lot of people they leach duty cinematic approach. We've seen so it's about yard match and stuff like that In his message ager you know deal. This is a match at a lot of goals. Kind of going into this thing. We wanted to accomplish with it and I wouldn't the opposite direction of some of the bigger massively seen lately Starts trying to hide the fact that there's no crowd and doing the cinematic approach and using different camera angles and tricks? I decided to go the opposite direction as that. Make it like not so much like it's an empty arena like. Oh we're live from the beautiful place former senator or whatever in China like an act like the people in the building like 'cause he lets you like holding it built up and there's nobody building or looking around when there's no fancy look like an idiot so I was like okay. Let's not pretend there's people in the building but Megan anti arena not because there's a pandemic going on but because the Nagara got an issue all right. Let's meet somewhere. Let's settle it mino email just like we want we on each end the waffle house. Nobody's there nobody's there to help you. It's me and Hager Manoa model. There's no ring announcer obvious. No fans only other person in the building where he is not even announced there. There's no photographer as it's just. Mono Mono and strip away all the extra stuff and just wants to fight and that's what I think I think we would find out tonight. I will say this. I've been in some stiff masses this year. They you know brutal and stiff. Hard hitting This one takes the cake by far. I was screwed up for days. My face was swollen up in purple. Here swath up like double aside like cauliflower. Here I shipped choose pretty certain that broke my ribs there in the match. That didn't but that was pretty confident that broken ribs for the duration of the match. And if you've ever wondered what happens when you never professional wrestling match with professional and then they fighter who at the time is currently in his fight champ? A heavyweight no less. Well I'll tell you what happens punching a face there are Want to give too much away but now another thing I really wanted. Ah The competences show. Jk Her in a different light. He's he's one of one in eight of we don't have either different thing. We don't have anything like it on Erica in a ever made Undefeated and he's a free of an athlete especially right now the way he's training USC in Jordan thirty pounds. You'll see men only given too much late in the match. And then you'll be insane states and Tonight it's just about like you're not trying to get it anyway. I mean it's like mean haggerty didn't talk. We didn't said more than a few words to each other before they went to the ring. And and hopefully my all the physicality and stuff will be stopped by the audience. I don't fans of wrestling and combat sports and give me entertained during this horrible and you know you had done one of these video packages and you made some comment offhand about. I've never been hit as hard as I've been hit by by I guess it would have been Jek swagger at the time but I believe that I just look at this guy and I can absolutely believe that now you have done some Eh may training I mean how much editor of Zama Maior grappling or whatever you've done but how much have you done In we're at extreme now Can't right now say my garage. But it's an extreme petur. Do different stuff. They're mostly submission grappling. I started doing She's just doing and smissing playing in like two thousand eight was don't try and pretty regularly for a long time. I was doing those. Naga tournaments like grappling tournaments and What's I started? Really picking up steam on India's travel and live in Cincinnati anymore. It just kind of fell. I have always tried to like off. You know train regularly because it's just it's fun you know scrambling start and but like being on the road with so long. I was trying. I was GONNA create conservatives place a few years ago I was trying to always get in there like on Wednesday on my day off but over the years just getting beat up got it like if I have a day off. I can't be getting beat up on my day off too so last but it was the first things I wanted to like. Add back into my life consistently time so you know I noticed you had a while back. I forget it was against but they did something off the top and you caught him in a rear naked and that was the finish and I thought that was rather interesting. It was who that's right. Sammy. I thought that was an interesting finish right there. I mean was that kind of one of the things about about new Japan. That kind of interested you the the style of wrestling where you know. It's a little more shoot oriented. You can do more of that stuff than you would do it for example. You'd never do that at show. I don't think but you know there's the opportunity to do some of that stuff on a percent. I Lo- I like I like my wrestling. To be kind of sports oriented violent oriented Like I don't like as much mass as where I mean. I like all kinds of wrestling like when a guy is like. Well I feel like this dude is trying to entertain me like he's dancing. And he's doing a gimmick or something like I don't want that as much I want you to not even pay attention to me as an audience member and I want you to look at your opponent and tried to next him up. I want you to be trying to hurt him. WanNa feel like you're in a fight and not care what I'm if I'm hearing or not and then I get lost in a match like that. I think that's close to what you see with me. Hager tonight and that's kind of this kind of what I always try to bring. What's tried bring aws at mindset? Make myself staying out from the first match. That had he ws with Joe. And you know he's all like and I kinda tried to establish that right away you know he's like I don't care she'll be entering whatever and I'm like I. Did you say that I'll actually do it? I do not care like we'll be friends afterwards but if you sign up for last meeting hurry so I think to beat him. Put His seat tasks for no other reason than take. I'm showing you what's going to happen so never going to happen when you say stuff like that like I'll have to like you know what I mean so I didn't just beat him I you know and that's just the mindset I liked begins. You know like I worked up for matches. Sometimes what like I think I've legitimately eight like imagine with like William Regal? They're like she's Yuki before Matt's like I've convinced myself that I i WanNa Arches Guy you know 'cause I'm trying to like you know well that was actually one of the great things about this Zouqi match when you say you know. I don't care well you in. Sukey are two guys who don't care and you went in there and you kill each other and it was glorious and are there any comparisons that you have between this Zouqi match and the match tonight. Yeah in that. There's not really gonNA talking about beforehand. There's no plan anything. No spots US team in the message Zouqi and when fifteen twenty minutes or whatever. We didn't talk about anything and you don't watch back his offense consistent. I mean that's a brutal fight but when you look back and is like offense consisted of a sleeper and they dropped kids my offense consisted of a clothesline and add. And it's about like you know maximizing and telling the story and stuff like that you know all that crap that's cool to feel like light years join now. I'm like it's so I just love that thing. It's so much fun to just go out there and have different types matches and different stuff and like still satisfied with the piece of work at the end of the satisfy with like I was still trying everything name. 'cause there are entire story through eight weeks they didn't need 'em came up with the ideas around you know about like and then we just stood by the ring through some ideas out. How are we gonNA keep going for eight weeks and build and build and build it for the ultimate payoff at the right time and we have fun I still? It's called all that. And he took my eye out and I got deadly serious and then I had to go through all these obstacles and they brought in fashion and then finally to get the paper. You and it's just like peaked at the exact perfect time. When I got the paper view it felt like the work was like everybody loses because the way a story. So it's not like are they gonNA put on this or not or cause in years past and they just never wrestling state?

I pride myself. Pitching Ability Faculty develops in his childhood. All when I was not studying so winding up I let fly once again at the floor. After performing several similar experiments came to the scientific conclusion that the unknown fluid in the sink imbued the baseball with an amazing property. The baseball was repelled.

Well I didn't think of that. I thought only this if I should smallholder pitches me if I should pause. Some fluid unresponded divided hold.

Preparing To Send Your Kid off To College | CarSmart Edition - 459

"Today's review by rhonda nunez titled high five shalini is always right on. She definitely is knowledgeable balanced in in a bright light. She is my number one favorite well. Hey there welcome to this edition of lean show. It's car smart friday. Put your seatbelt on. We are going for a ride a ride that some of you are. You're on this journey right now. Some of you are passed it in some of you are years and years away and i wanna give you some idea of how to prepare for that day the day send your baby off to college. Welcome to the show lean show jelena's a new york times bestselling author celebrity fitness trainer in obsessed with helping you live your dream life threatening to kids brock our oldest and sierra his is sister and both of them are now off at college. Brock was obviously f i and i think brock was harder to send off to college because he was her first and also because he went so far away but recently because of this time of year having getting a lot of questions from people asking asking like how do i deal with this. And how do i prepare in. What should i know and i remember asking that question to and hearing even women women who i know really well would give kind of guarded answer almost like yeah. It's not easy almost like they didn't want to tell you how hard it was. It's kind of like childbirth right like people. If you ask another woman like what was it like to have a baby they say always the most beautiful thing it's the greatest thing you'll ever do happiest day of my life the most meaningful thing i've ever done but if you actually ask about the birth earth you know sometimes that's a pretty horrific story and not everybody's really honest about that and i don't think everybody's really honest about what it feels like to drop your a kid off at school so i wanna share with you some honest. You know i guess recollection like what i remember about head what we went through and if you don't want to hear this because it's quickly approaching. I'm just gonna encourage you to keep listening listening because there's some things i wish i'd known right and even my oh mama. You know there was a point at which i left school. There was a point at which after i graduated graduated so i went to school in michigan state and grew up in michigan and then after i graduated from michigan state which was only about an hour and a half from where i lived breads in the car our with me is how far was known our sixty seventy minutes so once i graduated from michigan state and i met this guy who was from california california who went to michigan state we decided to move to california and i remember my mom and dad hugging me and you know saying oh good bye in the airport and i remember being a little bit tear filled but i you know i've never talked to my mom about like how hard that was what she went through or any of those things you so. It's one of those things we we don't always talk honestly about it but if you think about it every woman you've ever met who's a mother. An older mother has has tried to warn you about it in subtle ways. It's the woman who crouches down next year stroller and says it's going to go by so fast it. It goes by so fast. It's over in a minute enjoy every moment and you've heard people say that in when you're in it you're like oh. I can't go by fast enough it so it can be overwhelming. You feel like you're making so many sacrifices when your kids are little and there's is constant fighting and there's you can never rest. You can never close your eyes. What honey that sane what three in that time the days this were long. The years just went by so fast enough that was saying but we heard that and that was in jail. It's so true you know. Just just remember when they're so little feeling like what is it gonna be like like. I don't wanna make it sound like we're looking forward to our kids being gone but but you look forward to a day where you can like kind of like take a deep breath and you're not running every second and there's always something to remember in someone's homework and uh-huh lunch to make an ono's on their project and now we're running out to walmart in the middle of the night is walmart open in the middle of night. You know what i'm saying like yeah. I remember like we're going to you like the twenty four hour c._b._s. Because some forgot to do their project and you know doing all nighters with them and it just it just it's constant and you wonder like. Is this easier easier. When is this going to get easier. And when will i be able to like just chill on focus on my husband or focus on my thing and then all of the sudden it happens so when other women usually sometimes husbands or maybe even your own parents when they tell you that like it goes goes by so fast i remember thinking when does the pay start to pick up well. The pace starts to move at the speed of light the summer months just prior to taking your kid off to school all of a sudden. You're gonna wake up. You're gonna open up your eyes and you're gonna say holy cow. It's here now. I have friends specifically my friend michelle park. We exercise together and i won't won't forget how we talked about. A law goes cool to have her to talk about it but we also would also tried to not talk about it because we both get teary eyed when it was happening with our kids and i remember thinking like okay. I'm just a pretend that this is no big deal. I'm going to try not to think about it and then all of a sudden sudden time was here and we were packing up to take brock to school so i'm really trying to think. How do i tell you and that's what i'm going to do and i tell you exactly how i felt and it's only my experience years. Maybe very different. I had sadness there. There was a piece that felt like. I don't want to say a death but you just feel like this empty. Sadness this like like lump lump in your throat but at the same time there was this happiness like sadness because we were happy. I think ours ars to be honest had a lot to do with how far was going to be warm. I mean i i really do. I think i just remember myself because i was in a similar situation as brock going off to school to play football and when i was green in our away from home my parents i have to ask them but i don't remember them. Having any and you know emotion about or anything like that because it's an hour away similar to what we did was sierra like literally we jump in a car in any moment either in an hour yeah rock doc. It's a six hour flight yeah so let's start with the end in mind for us. You know in for you you as a parent or maybe as you're thinking about what your own parents tried to do with you. We set out to raise an adult like when we had kids we we said our job is to prepare them to be adults like prepare them to handle it themselves and so things that we worked on all their lives and we consciously thought about it we read books and we listen to podcasts but we wanted to make sure that they were self sufficient that they were kind that they were really confident. Be confident in a way that they didn't have to be boastful or arrogant source full cool very yet. We wanted them to be resourceful. We needed them to believe in themselves. We wanted them to be problem. Solvers now everything that i've said so far the only way you raise a kid to be a problem solver is if you make them solve their own problems because if you're doing it for them that doesn't help them. We wanted to teach them how to manage money how to save money how to make money how to come up with money. When you're in a pinch and the only way you do that. It's not by telling your kids yeah actually have to have them experience and so we did that we taught them how to be organized how to create a daily schedule how to clean their rooms and keep things declared and not just like you have to do this because your mom and dad's rules but we help them understand like why that was such a benefit to them like how much better their brains fell and how much easier it was for them to sleep if they made a to do list out for the next first morning like from the time they're really young. We taught them how to create daily list. We always want them to know that they had their own voice. Yes well you and i always had the last say but we always wanted them to come to the table were to bring ideas to us or ask us questions and never feel like they couldn't ask questions uh-huh war right or if they had an opinion about something that they felt intimidated to sure we would always give them like okay well. Here's your options and if you wanna do this one here the consequences you can expect if you wanna do this. Here's what you're going to have to deal with him. We would always laid out for them and kind of like let them decide but unwholesome helped him to understand. You're gonna have to deal with the consequences. Mom and dad aren't like modern it up. We want them to trust themselves wanted wanted them to know we trusted them and the only way you do that is by giving your kids enough rain that they know that they're being trusted until until such time that they haven't earned that trust and then we would rain back in. We wanted them to be able to make their own decisions so i think you know when i look look at their friends other people i know whose kids like really struggle with decisions is because their parents made all the decisions for them. Here's who you're hanging out with. Here's what you're wearing. Here's a sport that you're playing here the teams you're playing for. Here's you don't like just tell them everything and so the kids they don't get to make decisions agents and what that does is it produces an eighteen year old who is paralyzed because they can't make decisions because someone's always made them for them so we we taught them mm to make decisions and we taught them that they're going to be problems to expect problems and then leave you can fix it. You can fix it yourself. Mama comedy. I don't need to fix it. You can fix it yourself and i'm not saying they look we didn't help our kids and that they didn't struggle and they didn't come to us and say but i don't know what to do and when they would do it out we would walk them through. It like well okay well. What are the options so that they could learn how to think that way themselves on process yeah mm-hmm. We tried our best to teach them how to make friends and get along with people the find new friends yeah and if you want to feel really secure when you're taking them to school. I don't know if you've got time to do this like if you're a couple years out or ten years away or fifteen years away or fifteen days away you want to give your kids the tools that they need to cope because they are going to be homesick. They are going to miss you. They are going to be sad and alone that you have to prepare them to feel that and how to cope with it so that when it gets tough if they're not like mom i'm coming home. Brock was homesick. I don't recall syrupy in homesick again. Because it's different. I think our way branca's definitely the home second. He you know tried really hard not to tell us he was trying to you know have a stiff upper lip and tough it out but you know eventually eventually he he confided in me how homesick he was and how you know kind of saudi was and we talked through it we talked about what he could do to keep keep themselves busy and occupied and happy and focused on a goal and at that time it was starting a new business for him and so he had these couple of months where he was able to sir building a business start filming an academy just before school started but to back that is sierra sierra did also have some anxiety because it was the first time that she was on her own. You know like on our own yeah you you know and she struggled a little bit at first of like organizing her time yeah and i remember some of those phone calls especially with you is just like she. He needed to really go back in relearn that lesson again yeah like it was just a reminder to okay. Nothing's different. Just pull out your day planner planner paul. You're pushed journal. She literally using push journal and i'm like and just do the same thing you just. It's just that your schedule has changed and for her. That was a little bit of a difficult transition because she had figure out. Why am i exercising. When am i shopping for healthy food and by the way i've asked both of my kids. I'm going to give them some guilt over this. I've asked them to both with prepare for me so you could hear directly from them how they both were able to maintain their healthy lifestyle because they both you know didn't fall into that like unhealthy food trap or the drinking a lot trap or the you know laying around like they both used exercise and nutrition shen to create that normalcy see you want to help your kids understand that they're gonna feel those things you wanna teach them how to deal with disappointment and then how to pick themselves sells back up and to expect that and there's a couple of good books. I want to recommend for you guys. I'm going to put them in the show notes because i can't think of them right now while i'm driving but i remember there's one one that's like really really good and i can't remember the statistic. I'm going to mess it up but like it was shocking. Something like seventy five percent of freshmen want to come home and drop out of school like oh back to mom and dad within the first three months and that was really reassuring because sierras roommates definitely went through that and and they stayed <hes> <hes> i remember brock experiencing that with a lot of kids at the school he was at okay so now let's see that's how you prepare your kid and and and i think one of the things i felt was a sense of almost like pride so whenever i do a big big project brett will tell you this true whenever i finish a huge project that i'm really focused on doing it well and meeting a particular goal and i settled with the end in mind that objective and once i reach that goal i always have an emotional response whether it's writing a book or doing an exercise program or finishing the marketing impact academy or you know raising a child and sending them off to school like i. We have this moment where i just break down and cry. It's almost like when you see some across the finish line the first time they marathon. The tears are just like happy with with myself like i did. It and i made the sacrifices in your proud and your reflective in your. You're just taking a moment to say like i did it. We did it get that. It's not sad in. It's not like overwhelmingly happy. It's just emotion. It's just like i did some tough and i made it through it. Yeah everybody's survived in high survived and i just need a good cry right. I think if i were like the climbed the top of a mountain i would probably get up to the top and cry six. Oh yeah okay. Don't take me hiking though <hes> the heels for that gear other. How long do you remember feeling like that. The house was empty or feeling sad five or six weeks. I think i think it took five or six weeks. I think i needed to create new habits and new like to get used to the situation. Yeah i just remember coming home with with sierra and thinking it's us. It's just the three of us knowing that like she was probably sad and they're like certain certain songs. I couldn't hear and i really was trying to like and here's here's another thing i wanted to just mention before i forget is don't make this hard on your your kids. The absolute biggest mistake that you can make is to make your child feel guilty or feel more emotion because because i mean i've heard parents say like i feel like my heart's been ripped out like one brock's roommates. When he first went to georgetown his mother would call hall and cry every night and i was like get a grip like cried your husband. Don't cry to your son. That's just not right in my opinion. This is going to go really crazy but it's when i downloaded snapchat and because i needed a way to stay connected to them other than texting and so that's right when like you know everybody was doing snapchat but i hadn't even downloaded the app and i remembered downloading the app in the hotel the night before he left and that that was just gonna be like our thing yeah and i mean we still doing it like we are. Streak has like crazy so like we every day we talk to each other in every single day for three three years two years now at the new school even when he's here and m brock still snapchat other every single day so we we never lose that streak which is so funny but that really did help us so you like making videos. You know it's one thing to send a video on your phone but just social me made that really super easy and it's better i mean i'm not saying don't do facetime but facetime requires both you to be on the same schedule and you know sometimes sometimes it's quick. Sometimes you can't do it. I mean snap is like you could do it. You can give them a message or you can ask him how as days going and you can send it to them and they can answer and respond at their own. It's facetime sometimes can be difficult because they don't know your schedule and you don't know their skin yeah. It was cool because brookwood. Send us like videos of him walking through campus and again we see them when we opened up the app right so we could see like his room are is roommates are a little glimpses of where he was going and where he was you know having bring lunch and who he was sitting with and with the library looked like it was really cool and it did really help us to feel can let me think what else i wanted to say even sierra. It was sad so we we talked about it. I would say it was probably about the same amount of time for me to just go like okay. This is the new normal and then you feel that sadness again when they come home for christmas break and then leave you feel that same sadness if you go to visit them and like i just remember when we would visit him at georgetown saying goodbye thinking. What am i doing so choked up again. You know be you know you're gonna see your kid again and it's just different and no one really you can't prepare for. I did not think i was going to be sad. I did not think i would feel i was going to feel the way that i did as hard to explain and just does gives me total like i can't even think about what it would be like to lose a child old. I can't even go there can't do it but some things i think would be helpful for you is to to not wallow in it to give yourself a chance to cry you know but don't burden your child with your sadness. Let them know that you're 'cause. You're gonna cry why you're gonna cry when you say goodbye. I think unless you have a heart of ice but when you do that like tell your child like because i'm crying. Doesn't i mean that i'm not so so happy for you. I'm so so happy for you. I'm feeling emotion. I remember all of us being good like all of us being good until we were a sitting outside of this dorm room and it was just like oh this yeah yeah. You're going this way and we're going that way. We're not coming back to pick you up tomorrow. Breakfast have a flight tomorrow morning that was weird and it was still early. Remember he. He had something that night he had to go. I actually had the recording of it so play that yeah but do you remember the night before you made a toast at dinner and i was like you know you're like so brock and we're all like in choked up and you know now. I think brock was fine. You'd probably excited. I don't know what he was feeling. I'll have to ask them but so for you. I would just say don't burn in your child with it and keep yourself busy like set a new goal a new objective you now try to find the positives in it like we really did have suddenly a lot more time. Even though we still had sierra home you know we went to olive bronx games and we're always entertaining his friends and always he's making food and always shopping and always clean their kids. Take a lot of time and just having one less. We were like wow we have more time time and more money because i can eat a lot of food and so look forward to that and take on a new project something you can pour yourself into and i'm not saying that you should just you know brush over or with the word when you push down your feelings what's called. Don't bury. Are your feelings like i want you to feel all the feels but i also know people who like they just dwell on it becomes their identity become become your identity because every picture they look pass and babies making cry and you know what the other thing too is if it becomes your identity and your dwelling in it and unless you have an only child your other children are seen yeah and then what if you if you do it when they leave or they don't get the same feeling feeling or i don't think that you can say oh. I love this child more than that this child by because of that action just think about your other kids instead are at the house. I mean they still need. You still need all those lessons to them so if you are like wallowing in one child going off to school wall than everybody else well. I'm going to see a <hes>. I'm gonna play that message for you guys but do me a favor and do yourself a favor and start something new. Maybe you're going to blog about the experience or maybe now's the time to write your book or maybe now is that time for you to dig in and i'm really discover. What is your thing. What is this thing that you've had inside of you that you've just haven't given yourself permission to figure out what it is that you could do something with it. Something funds you start a new side hustle or take up a hobby that you used to love and take it back up again like us time so that it is a new beginning for you too and enjoy it and if your kids i mean if you're an apparent to an only child or i can't imagine like you. You've had twins and you send in both off at the same time. I just don't even know what that feels like but i have to imagine and just from everything i read before recording this today. I tried to find blogs. Were like moms and dads really honest about the feelings. They all say you get through it pretty quick. I mean i mean think about it. I mean five five six weeks. That's what i recall and you know what it wasn't like. Five or six weeks of i i was bombed and then all of a sudden on the six week it was good. It was just a gradual thing but i remember it took me the time and it was one week. Real sadness from you like one like probably four days as of like a lot of sadness and then and then a week of just feeling just like something wasn't right at home. Something was missing. Someone was missing and then every week. He got got a little bit better so it does get better with time all right. I'm gonna play you this message now. That's what else in our house got a little quieter. 'cause brock. Out of our children's talked a lot. More here are quieter yeah now. I'm gonna cut to a recording that. I made basically a couple of days. After after we drop broke off at college was pretty raw so enjoy but no you're going to get through this. I know you will have not been as consistent assist with my podcasting is i had been in the past and i thank you for honoring the fact that i have honoured my family so the last year a year you know it was brock's last senior year in high school and as you've been on this journey with me we have two kids bracken sierra so we took brock to school in georgetown mm-hmm and let me tell you i had decided to ignore it. Ignore that it was coming. Ignore that everyone was telling me oh girl you're gonna be so sad and i told brock like dude. We're okay. We're just gonna low key this so you know let's talk about too much for those people who are trying to tell us. It's gonna be really sad. A stomach could be deal so everybody cry. Let's just do the whole knuckles thing you know. Maybe a fist-bump in say. I'll see you soon but here we are beautiful. Amazing campus built in eighteen forty seven in washington d._c. Twenty five hundred miles away from home. The air feels different. People dressed differently. The campus looks like from a movie and i'm standing there with brett and sierra and it's a warm humid night. Kids are moving their the stuff into their their little apartments in dorms. They're really dorms and the sun is just said like there's just a little bit of light for the streetlights. Come on and it's that moment moment where you you hug your kid did he try not to lose. It and you're saying goodbye the same way you said goodbye every time they've left to go to school every time they've left to go on a date but you just know this time. It's different. Try to hold it together and i did. I tried to hold it together. I didn't want him to feel guilty. I wanted to know oh. It was sad for me but i wanted to be excited about where he was. I let them see me. Cry a little bit breath. <unk> ford needed toast to him. <music> are at dinner and got teary eyed and here. I am looking man really his big broad shoulders but i still see a baby baby and see them. Just you know walking away forever but the emotions are so profound and i've been trying to sort through wet. Those emotions are pull myself. Back together can tell you what they are. 'cause it's amazing amazing and it's really happy tears you here. You can probably see maybe you're have. Some of your <unk> own are because i'm so proud. I'm so proud of my commitment. Yeah i was gonna miss him but a big part of my happiness is that we did it right. I kazuko regrets. I don't regret saying yes to anything because we wave goodbye to a man who obviously we will. We'll see again very soon but he's ready. We did our job and we did it right. We did it well. We raise a young man who will leave his mark. No matter where he is who will touch the lives of many who cares cares about others who was kind who is humble who has strong faith determination and you can take care of himself in my tears were just like it was the same kind of tears i experience. He knows not even on the same level but look when i finish a giant giant giant huge project and this was the first half of a giant giant huge project the second half of course being his sister but pretty amazing you guys and you know it's the new normal course of course i miss him terribly but i've read so many books about this you know myemma reader recipe books and listen to podcasts and talk to their parents.

Anyways i mean i don't claim to speak on behalf of everyone son emptiness in yeah. I miss them but like god more. It's just like well. I can't believe we raise the human.

Podcast is presented by capital on this is banking re imagine crispy. Don't have a catchphrase for Mondays. You know we do. It occasionally Mosey on Monday. Something like that make it happen on a Monday not today. Have you seen this time? Chain springing forward I mean Jeez I felt like I was running late but I'm really really early. Technically for just going by the time you've been in the whole thing is stupid. Yeah let's stop doing that. We did that. Performers this antiquated. What is time you know there's still farmers Riley still but even the farmers are like science has improved to the fact that you don't have to like our asleep and change. The clocks is cold. You like farmers get together and guys. This is late. Let Mike know. There's there's a lot of articles out there. Billy I know that you want to be a cynic right now. There's a lot of law that is pending. A lot of senators have proposed getting rid of daylight savings time because it is a moronic crack. It's the it's the greatest strongest Stance Marco. Rubio has ever taken. I know it's bizarre timing. Marco Rubio's park considering everything that's going on like he put out like this impassioned plea on the Internet and if you're watching it on mute and you just thought across your timeline. He was giving you a corona by which is how Dan was watching it. Yeah he gives you like an update impassioned plea that. We need to stop changing the clocks in our homes. This is all absurd Dunkin Robinson. Holy Shit Man. He is one of the shooters in the NBA effective field. Goal percentage I believe is number one The Miami Heat are the number one three point shooting team and it's because of Duncan Robinson. They'd be like four points. Lower in terms of field goal percentage from beyond the arc if it were not for Duncan Robinson he's played spectacularly that loss in New Orleans was a little bit frustrating Dunkin Robinson doesn't get any calls and moreover he gets bizarre foul called on him. He's not going to be treated like a superstar but this is yet another shining beacon of the heat scouting department turning someone into an asset. That was one of the more improbable. I don't know how familiar you guys are. With Duncan Robinson Story and how he even got Michigan didn't start at Michigan. He wasn't this highly. Recruited players like this was a Juku Guy. He's one of the more improbable. Nba Players. There is right now and he got a technical foul last night. Whichever one was like Dunkin just shove to guy and then you find out after that it was as college roommate and that they were just talking crap to each other so it was just like a news into a pool and write the Dunkin Robinson a carries the Miami Heat. It looked like they were destined for another road laws last night. They've been really struggling. I Jimmy Butler hurdle you got mixed up last. Okay Jimmy Butler does this occasionally and some of these games. You need him to help you out on the road. I'm I'm grateful that Bam on a bio sort of settled in and was the the sort of help right the ship because it looked like we were doomed. Yeah for another road loss Yeah Jimmy Butler supposedly player for me like I like a lot of the things he does but his game does bother me. Sometimes in the Dunkin Robinson thing is interesting because I told you recently that the heat Think of Duncan Robinson and tyler hero as being able to replicate some of the Steph Curry Klay Thompson stuff. And I'm like slow down there but the speed with which Duncan Robinson gets off. That shot reminds me of clay. He's doing it faster than most right. Is there anyone who has done like a sports science thing on how quickly he gets rid of the basketball when he shooting because this is one of the finest evolutions in the game that I have seen? Were guys are just a lot faster about getting that. Three point shot up accurately. When's the last time you saw sports science? We should what happened at. That was awesome. John Branca's hasn't done a breakdown on Dunkin Robinson's released. But it's like sort of hell he go where where did Duncan. What did the John Branca sports science segments go. I've done a small study on it and he's got a quick release. Wow how quick quick. It's really fast. It looks really fast. Almost as quickly as John Branca's was ripped away from our lives without us noticing. Is that up for bidding? How can we get? Billy didn't seem radio row. I saw around. You know he's doing science. He's the Kinda guy you just see around yeah on Qb or something like that. Is there like a web streaming platform where we can get some more sports science? He was collecting data. That guy brought great energy to a segment. Oh yeah he brought great science to those were now. What do you mean? Well I mean as a such a thing as great science fans boring. I haven't let's be real. You're not interested in its CO host Creator. Espn sports I was kind of seeing. What brings us up to the PODCAST. Any some guys. He's a musician. Yeah under his own name. Like if I go to apple music I can listen to a commercial release from John Brings. You can find him on spotify. Just Vance called on the broncos. There's Lizzy in John. I said today walking and I'm like you know what I'm just going to stop. I'm going to take a few less this week. I feel like I've been getting a little too little too Look at me with the stupid jokes and here am like thirty seconds of your father like this is. This is how it happened. This is how your father was in about your age. I think I found the Christmas song done by John. Us and his wife Lizzie. It's the only release. The name of the song is Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I've told you before that your father used to. He used to make all of those bad jokes he's still does but I'm saying I knew him when he was in his prime on that front and he would say that all he was looking for was at bats that he was Cesar Tovar two hundred career hitter and that he was totally fine if he went to for ten but every time he'd make a bad joke and he'd often make a bad joke. I would say something to him like Infield Papa and he's like nope ground grounded single single like he'd never make an out According according to a crazy game like no. But you've become head you are slowly morphing into him where you do things like you come in here and you say. I'm GONNA try and take fewer high some doing too much look at me and then twenty seconds into the local hour a lot of foul tips there. John and wife Lizzie release a Christmas called. Christmas is my favorite time of year. Two Thousand Fourteen which charted at number thirty on the AC charters. The only unsigned act taking the inspiration from their Christmas song. John and Lizzie launched the band brink of midnight. Thousand Sixteen rank of midnight or brink midnight on the brink gutters soul and others in the forthcoming EP build on chiming risks soaring vocals and rhythmic hooks the catch the year and refused to let go. No grandstanding or overproduced balladry here. This is sleek rock with pop polished to a shine but not at the expense of smoothing over all the occasional rough edges. That was buzz Mcclain. Music critic Tuesday's Buds McLean. What does he write for? That was actually exceptionally well. Read it it was it was well read too. I might add like your Your Voice was very Dulcet buzzes. Mclean I mean I need to listen to this song. What an incredible endorse. Let's find it and play right now. How podcast worked in for the million frigging time. Can't play commercial music on the PODCAST. I'm sorry to break this to you. I know it's heartbreaking for you to hear this for honestly it's been five hundred times that I've said it over the air let alone private. Let's play it. No so the heat are now just three wins away from cashing that over forty three and a half total before the season. They need to get the three. They need to get the three. They're almost a game in and a half out of it now. Crazes rollercoaster overseas a few games ago. We were like oh no. We're going to be the sixty two now. We're back to a game a half game and a half away from three. You're saying they need to get to the three to avoid the bucks in the second round. I feel like what you want is to be playing Indiana in the first round. Let Boston and let let Boston and Philadelphia. Go at each other. And you want to be four because Indiana's a five right now. Oh but I think Philadelphia's going to finish the season five. Do you're not confidence in that way. I mean there's still games enough games. They could hit his trip and they got injuries. Simmons's out embiid is in and out lately. I in the end in the end just flatly better at this point. I think he'd rather play in the. Nf The playoffs. I think the sixers series would be incredibly fun. Those Games are going to be really annoying. If Not Indiana. It's Chris. He's saying he'd rather play the sixers. The sixers are that's what I kind of clarifying. I'm with Dan. I would've thought I would rather play the Pacers. I Look Sixers. Only a game behind the pay her so. Y- sixers would be really fun series but let's not overlook and we're coming up on the game actually The TJ warned. Jimmy Butler feud. They're going to be playing here in a couple of weeks thinking you know that wasn't sinking. That's how it was good. I'm just saying that Jimmy Butler is not exactly clashing with a peer there understood but it's pacers heat and I don't know when I watch those teams. It's still gurgles within me. The Games are tight. It's it's hard for the Miami Heat to win an Indiana right now in the end is better as presently argue saying `i Kristin asked the question right because he asked. You you'd rather play Indiana. You'd rather play the seventy sixers. Is that what you're saying like did you not see NBA Primetime? Saturday probably not because it was warriors six I saw everyone was out. Everyone was out and For both teams Steph didn't play right. Yeah the the sixers. The sixers are bad basketball team right now especially without when you take away. Ben Simmons they gotTa do something about this Rosser. It's going to end in early playoff exit and they need. Do I think they need to break ties with one of those two guys? Either Simmons or embiid this Rosser just flatly doesn't work. I think a better coach might actually actually let me take that back until the end of the segment. I think there is a good coach out there. That can make this work with Ben Simmons in Joel embiid named the coach. Who is it Eric's bullshit? For example I just I though. There are two talented to not work. I understand how pieces are difficult. And you want us around guys like that with shooters. I think if you play. Ben Simmons like at the four a little bit more. There's an interesting thing to be had there. But Ben Simmons is a great defender on the perimeter. He's a great ball handler. So I don't really know I don't really know exactly how to pull it off but it's really frustrating if you're a sixers fan to have all this talent and to have this to show for it and Jimmy Butler seems to have made the right decision and it's not really because the Miami heat are that spectacular Philadelphia's just so fricking bad so bad I want the sick. He hasn't said it Chris. We've asked him seven different ways. You even asked him the wrong way by asking him. Whether he'd provided trickle. I was trying to trick them. Dan I so the sixers playoff series would be really fun. Losing a game to the sixers would be incredibly annoying for me just in my mentions Philadelphia fans. I don't know if you've known this about sports but they're the worst there. The reputation precedes them. And it's just like a tire fire anytime. The sixers like make a shot from the outside for me so in that respect. I don't want to play. The sixers just started that with them like you started criticizing them going out. You have this coming. You agitated them. It's not like sixers fans just like. Let me reach out to Mike Ryan for absolutely no reason at all. Why would they even know who you are like to come after you really really sixers fans are kind of all right? Let's let's be real here. You're talking about a fan base. That booed Santa Claus like the sixers. Were terrible long before I came along. Let's say you shouldn't be surprised. They're doing you know it'll be if gentleman sweep them like that'll be fun for me right but we're still losing a game and a gentleman sweep and just one experience even if it comes at like three. Oh is just GONNA be. I've never heard that expression before. A gentleman sweep what is it. It's you heard the gentleman sweep. I've never heard that. Is that winning a series by five in five and five game a gentleman. I wouldn't be so you're going to beat the seventy sixers. I mean the wizards were hanging. Tough all game yesterday. I finally put it away with like a minute and a half left when they had like three straight three close game. We were very close to coming in here. Off of two game will now. They're five six. Now it's a great. We're in a great little run but we were pretty close to losing two in a row and one of them to a really bad the Miami Heat especially without Tyler Hero. Just they're they're bad road team right now and it's it's a tale of two different halves of the season because they used to call themselves Road Warriors. They have very impressive. Victory other short strategy has like Twenty Games. I wrote I know. But it's just that thing. Eric Reed says always GonNa be road warriors because he likes to say road. Warriors numbers be Dan. This is a matter. They were like the only l. in the column at home for teams like Toronto and Milwaukee and Philadelphia and now all of a sudden. You're eking it out against the Washington Wizards of the world and losing to the New Orleans. Pelicans that was a really fun. Game coincidentally it's a shame that Miami didn't have some calls in and that comeback came up short but sign on He's he's exciting. He seems like he's good. You see this guy business. He's excited on so weird. The paint yes caves everything in them. I'm like there's just no way this can like stay on a court healthy. My knees hurt watching it. Yeah it's just the way that he runs. I'm like there's something there's something off here like the body's just going to unravel at a certain point just from his normal casual jogging. It's it hurts to watch him run a little bit. He just he does everything so unique to him even if he breaks out of a shoe. You're like I've never seen anybody break out of a shoe that way. I've literally never seen someone. Jog Up and down floor the way that he does Nike whatever. It is whatever Maine I mean was saying that. There is no precedent for the way that that team offensive rebound because of him Because its own misses the way I mean. I don't know what the number is recently but Habur stroke told us the last time we checked that it was forty. They rebound forty seven percent of their. Mrs What is that? I don't understand it. I don't know how he knows that he's going to miss his shot. Every time and still somehow be over fifty percent shooting. It's it's IT'S. A mind bleep. The Guy Misses his first shot all the time rebounds and puts it in and he's shooting fifty six percent. I don't understand this. Whoa WHOA I see on twitter. Sorry this has nothing to do with you're talking about the MVP race. Everyone says this is the guy like. It's his lose after yesterday. Mike Wilbon says Lebron James is top. His ballot wow holy shit stop traffic. I can't wait to hear from God saying Lebron did that thing again this weekend. Brunton thing did you watch sedan was in the tank. I did watch. Jaanus is minus two thousand according to the Caesar Sports Book to win the MVP. Lebron plus seven hundred But Sodano is going after Barkley Barkley said on our show last week that you simply can't give it to anybody. Other than honest and Sodano is writing on twitter. I Love Charles Barkley but he said on Lebatardshow less weight that Jaanus is the runaway. Nba Mvp only fools idiots jackasses on TV the MVP raises closer than you think. I continue to be a fool idiot and jackass. Sodano has gone full. La Right like he's just Los Angeles Laker Guy. He's just to clarify that. Lebron doing that thing again. He took his yearly trip to Miami. No no Chris. He reminded the world that he's the best player Is He a Laker Guy? I thought that clippers gave him like their vice. Whatever it's called now sit down. So did they heat so that was for sale. He's likes to get anyone's Jersey. Sports Radio Ric flair sorry Saddam one in Cape Coral. You're on the air guys. How's everyone doing doing all right man? How's it going with you? Good Got a couple of topics I is it okay to pee outside your backyard when you're leading your dog L. My wife yells at me every single time. I do it but it's my house. I have a fenced in yard. Have Privacy fence and I feel like. It's one of the things that I get to do because I own a house do you. Own or rent on Nope can't do it outside. Where do you do this against the building against the House against the fence just in the middle of the yard now usually have a pool and how fenced in yard so I was GonNa say let the dogs outside the screen One I I just think right there while they go pee I go to. Is it Kinda like running water thing? You hear them peeing so it makes you or do you just time your ps around them It's usually right before we go to bed a night when I do it Just take advantage of without having to get up in the middle of night. I honestly because it's so close to a bathroom. I never pee in my backyard. I will be like outside on a golf course. If there's no hope bathroom around like I'll find spot near tree but I generally don't pee in my backyard swallowed a number two in your yard if you have to do that while the dogs out so you don't have to do that night. Or that's like the line the Li- definitely not that have you thought about it? You know have not being some people just like the outdoors. I I'M GONNA put my brother-in-law's business out there. But my brother-in-law sometimes like he could be like within three feet of a bathroom. That's indoors and he'll go outside to P and alleged with a line like this is how our answers back in the day. Everyone no he's he's just a bit of a caveman my brother-in-law's like outdoorsy types. That I don't know if it connects them to the major or if they're just like legitimate animals Roy. Ucla outside a lot. Not at all though. No gruesome outside outside. I've never never know Roy guest. I was kind of doing their like. I figured he'd say no so. I was never outside even like when you were a little kid. You've never peed outside. I don't believe you you do this thing often where it's like. I've never done something. It's like you've probably done it like one that you've never been out here have been on a road trip and you've been far away from Whatever those things are called the rest stop so you had to pull over and get a little P no usually make. It's addressed up right. Have your gas station. Have you ever in a moving vehicle coke bottle? No coke bottles hard at yourself game ever done that. I I know Chris for sure I have done that. Actually Chris did that on his word. Vero beach visit my grandparents and my dad was like we're not stopping and he gave me his diet coke bottle. Oh Wow tough man. I don't want to Brag but it's a small hole with. Yeah how everybody seated succeeded in. I think my brother was in the front and I was alone in the back. It was those Dad. Your brother and this was like. I must have been like fourteen or fifteen. Is this a long time ago but still yeah? I wasn't going to. I don't know because it's like it's one of those our forty five away so it's one of those ones you can get there and when we got in the car he's like p before he's like we're doing this in one straight shot and I had to go. Well Chris. I Know Your Dad Salt Life. Does that make you saw life if your dad salt? My Dad's really thought. He thinks he saw. Here's a situation in which you're always peeing greg salt out in the open. I don't know how often you guys go on boats like a little Saturday crummy your boat. You're listening to some music. You've had a couple beverages a few beers in the water though in the water. And you WANNA sometimes sometimes about moving right boats moving the winds gonNA push ups on the front of the boat right moving. Well also there are times that you don't want to just jump into the water and get yourself wet right so they'll just go out and you know me. And how every time I p the entire world is looking at my Weiner who? It's a lot of shy bladder situations out there. The takes awhile and you're like don't look at me. Stop looking time. And there's like a boat that I can see that's like five hundred yards away. I'm like they definitely have. They're just looking at my Weiner so it's just it's always a nightmare situation but Roy. If you've ever been you've been on boats plenty. Yeah you ever had a few too many and there's like just go out the side of the bow pal. No the boats. I've been in had restroom in hall. My God how look at you know you take your shoes off to get on these boats. Yeah when I actually have when you went to see Tony Kahn's boat and Chris p off the props. Yeah don't lie. Look Oh my God now you just. You just reminded me thinking of looking from far away on a boat. I was watching I got Disney Disney plus thing. So I'm like I'm going down rabbit holes of just old graceless. Probably yes. She's into Moana now. She like all show and watch me but I stumbled across sorry I stumbled upon the old Swiss family Robinson from like the sixties movie that I remember watching when I was younger and I was like Oh let me just watch for second and in the movie they had when they're when they're dealing with the pirates they have to pull out the old fashioned telescope to like look and see who is that ship faraway. Let's see fits into your pocket taking and I talked to myself. I use one of those in like today's life for what just to have like. Oh look there's is that billy downstairs. Billy come in elementary. It'd be really cool like we're at following some like address and you're like how far. Just give me a second detached. You like your old school man. Those things could make liquid bring back. I think if you come out with like a two thousand Twenty High Tech Telescope You can fit in your pocket and folded up. I mean accordion style. Your I think we've got. I think we can bring it back. Jack you're in the upper deck. The American Airlines Dunkin Robinson on the bench via technologies advanced. You you don't ready to talk. I know your own daljeet feeling of just the extending part of it. Let me see here. F- yeah well. They have to pass the metal detectors with the high maybe non sporting events. You get my point those things. All those things could still be around they are. They're called binoculars. No one gave me one of the pocket telescope birthday gift. When's your birthday Mamie? Maybe that put laughing at my. Xfl Group right now. Because I play like a weekly fantasy comp Ashley ask you a question about group chats because you often mentioned like you're xfo group J soccer group. Chet how many members are different from group Tattoo? Right because I feel it gets probably the same people who just a different Gen- there's a lot of lead over lake for instance Cowboy Carl's probably all your group. Chats Right Catholic. Choral is pretty. Yeah he's in all the group check because he's like dedicated weekly fantasies. Christmas one of them. I'm okay I have friends that group chats too and I'm always like why are you so negative group chats? Chris is very quiet at like. Eight hundred notification can turn turn off the notifications. Yeah soccer one. Yeah it's it's it's exhausting. It's hard it's hard to keep up with. Well Chris. I feel for you because I'm me and whittier like the only people you know a couple of them now. I know cowboy and like I've met a couple of them at that soccer thing. We did a couple of months back but I mean still. It's just all because I have because it's so regular that I do have. The notification vacation turned off. Yeah you got to go I will. Sometimes it's been an hour since I've checked it and I'll go on in their sixty nine Messa in less than an hour and it's just like I'm not going to scroll up so I'll just scroll a little bit and I see my name because sometimes I'm like the joke of the group. Jack is I'm don't ever look back. I pay first of all I pay because you never pay. I do still sorting Christian Pulisic right and you can make fun of my lineup. I am square with everybody in fact it might even be owed money because I did win one and I was like. I'm not asking for anyone's money. Just never been but I'm just saying I don't even done the math but I'm definitely I pay so basically I look at these like weekly jackpots. Occasionally win them but the group I essentially pay twenty bucks a week to just be in these ads right because like I'm an M. S. One in the next step. I want and it's just like I learned so much news from being in these groups. I do get a lot of my soccer news from this group chat so the xfl one like we have the most punitive urine a group chat that the lowest score every week doesn't have to do upon right. Thank God so chugging punishments in like my mls one and then my xfl one but the xfl one. For whatever reason I guess because of the League is just so out there that the punishments have gone so this week. You were supposed to usually. You're supposed to like chug like a White Claw. And then there's like a bunch of like side beds and people end up like chugging like three bourbons. Scott. It's been ratcheted up and this week. I had the idea because bad bunny. Put up this video of him. Dancing to one of his own songs with a Hashtag MATZEC Masa Tita challenges underwear in his underwear like in his bathroom and I was like lowest score this week and I thought it was being really funny and like its gains is and it was like me headed into the second. Half of last night's game vipers doing crunch delay. I'm like I just did this. A witty could be last when he's not going to be lives and like. Oh my God like there's going to be video of me and my underwear dancing and they're not going to delete. This could be team to lead on this one. He got out of it. Thank God the Tampa Bay Vipers and La. Wildcats had one for the ages. Last night it was a point scoring spree avoided. Last place narrowly in the guy that jude want to bed before the game thing and that he was clear just woke up to a bad bunny video and he's like shit that happened. I thought our vipers ability. I thought our vipers were making house excited. There goes he went. Three three is going to be one game back in whatever. It is easier conferences. Like a one. Four though yeah. They're season's over. I Dunno coach said next. Five Games are going to define US want. Does that? Answer your question. Yeah thank you guys.

All people are tax people so I wanted to start this segment talking about a Miami and I was asking around. Who the game did you see the game in the Miami? No I didn't I wasn't able to Kansas. Oh that's right let's ask you about Knight. Yeah all right going around the horn local sports wrap 'em all biggest night in south Florida hockey history and a bigger homer. Nearly is that no. I mean we made it through the Stanley Cup finals and ninety six but this is honestly one of the top. Ten biggest nights in the franchise's history. I feel like a decent way to gauge it. Roy How many times did you get goosebumps throughout the night? Ooh I knew I was GonNa Tell Royce never got I never. I don't believe it Roy's passionate Roy doesn't feel man. I don't feel that much Roy for the audience. That doesn't know the Florida Panthers. Retired the first Jersey in franchise history on Saturday. Roberto Luongo number one the hanging from the rafters at the BBN T center. Roy was there in attendance the way that the panthers do this Jersey ceremony. They don't do the halftime thing. This was before the before the game. Right yeah this yeah. This actually is thirty. Five thirty games and empty had been. Yeah it's very tough to get people out. Oh game to before why we do that. Well it was. It was a long ceremony. That's what he did he was. He was the thing that I would performing number one of their really number one take to be. They just dropping like some lose their. They did this against the Canadians. Yeah and it's early March. Which means a bunch of French Canadians or in town? This is already going to be one of the hottest tickets of the year. You would think that they would do this for a game. That actually needed the attendance boost but not only. Is it an odd choice? Because you don't need the bump in sales. You're going to be doing this in front of a bunch of Montreal. Canadian's fans now Florida Panthers fans. So what was the atmosphere like for the ceremony? I imagine look Roberta Longo. I know it was a dicey situation out in Vancouver but he is a Canadian hockey legend. He's a gold medal winner. You just one of the better. Canadian goalkeepers of his generation so I imagined the Montreal fans were very kind and respectful because number one. They're Canadian. Yeah Yeah and we're both Canadian. He's Canadian and it was half bill but it started getting heavy towards the end wants the wants to. Jersey went up. It was a it was just so now. Gucci's for you but no I was happy but No SMILE FACE. It was nice. Cody was st goals imposed moderator. On that he's the read write goldies. Yeah I know that he is currently but in terms of historically panthers is he the Eric Reed of the panthers. I know Well they started with Jeff Rimer. Who Do you think of right now? If we were making an all-time Panthers team who is the play by play Goldie. I would retire before. Would retire on those. It might be randy. Mola I would ask you know because radio. The radio calls for me. Are the most memorable play-by-play voice in Panthers history for me just because this is very viewing it through like our shows prism draining more because of the goal calls so when I think of like a voice associated with the panthers is probably anymore. Selfishly enough yeah. It's always Jeffrey Dahmer. Then went to day straighter for a couple of years. And then they went to Goldie and on radio rejects McDonald. And then they went to the rainy molar. The Golden Goldies Gang Gold and gold did the Climate Goldie was just. He's one of those guys. This is a testament to like anybody that wants to break into like sort of business like he hung around like he was doing like in arena sport. Updates he he said sites on like being this play-by-play voice and he did like a twenty year. Client to get to where he is and he's actually amazing at it. Looks really good voice for. He's fantastic so it was a classy ceremony. Did they bring in any of like? Roberto's old teammates going to think like yesterday did who was like who McLennan Jamie McLennan was. There was a former Panther. I Don Panthers every year. Who is that? He's more famous for being a flames. Golden not not really yeah. He's very good friends but rebuilt also they brought Roberto's like best friend and nobody knows from like. Where's the David Booth said? Why why haven't we retired the Beezer? He just wasn't long enough short. He's honorees a bit of a controversy. Yeah USA hockey director. Yeah there's a bit of a history of the NBA nf set the word right. The worst word. Yeah so we still honored him though. Well they're like honor. You're going to get here. His his hockey mask is is like in the Panthers Dan in the locker. That's what I call the locker. No there's like a History Jersey of the Miami Matadors. Ahl team or something like that and you see like all the seminal moments in south Florida sports hockey in south Florida hockey history. What do they call that thing The Panthers in a banner. Oh the DEV honor. So man. Beezer had like one of the coolest goalie mask to Downer. Yeah the dentist. Honor the donner playing chess. When everyone's playing one there's one Roy Brodsky had a good performance. He did not play. Okay so so are bad. Oh my level for his performance so yes you had an excellent performance up any goals if there's exact if there's anyone from the panthers listening to this they're for sure punching themselves for not thinking idea right of nelly singing. Oh I was GONNA say they're never gonNA have back. Oh that's gone one. Yeah well he also had open for Walmart. He's open for business. They would have paid him a few grand paid for his travel. Yeah Roy. If you could knows me my good man please get. The tape is taking a little bit of a while to load up going up. It's coming up. The standings coming up The panthers two points on need who don't play into tomorrow so they are three points out of their place in the division three points out with a game in hand and the game against the Toronto. Maple leafs yeah. So the panthers still live in the cat'll antic which is apparently the only path because the wild card race so seems are starting to play quite well So gotta get into the cat. Land all right. So that doesn't for the panthers Part of the local hour Natalie's like he's in England in March but he's good now. I couldn't have been there billy. I saw that you were at a Marlin Spring Training Game I was you've got great seats. Pretty cheap on stubhub has a fan. Yeah I mean super she was GonNa four throws like twenty bucks. You went to a road game. Yeah it was actually closer. I was glad it was a road game where there was a surprising amount of nationals. Fans there in West Palm. It was like six miles from Jupiter or something like that so it was like barely closer but I couldn't believe how many nationals fans were there. They won the world series. Man We talked to like our neighbors are seat neighbors sabres. Yeah and they were telling us that you know the neighbors dogs at Sabres. They were in town. I guess their kids like some sort of competition or something. But I can't imagine every kid and everyone kids were in a tournament so I guess mashing fans at travel. Well that's weird spring training. It's also the home of the Astros so I saw the sign. People put like the Astros and stuff like that and it says world series champion now I'd Weird Scheduling Cork like all of Miami. Sports teams played all of Washington. Dc sports teams this weekend. Like very gratifying. This game is like a soccer game. Tie Yeah. They went nine innings and spring training nine innings. Just look in the dugout to like all right. I mean did you want it? You want it free baseball. I wanted a winner even taken a loss at that point. I it's funny 'cause like the ninth inning ends and the bar. Just look into thing he gives a thumbs up and I'm like all right and they just walked out and everybody got up and left and everybody knew deal and I was like all right. Who who who was an action that's going to be a starter? Everybody for the most part of what you have your started Anderson was at third dickerson. Was that left Augie. Loretta two run double. He was a I. It took him out. And you got any NAT stars Eric Feigns is on the Net Really. Yeah Mash for a little bit. Everyone's the game. We're GONNA play this year last year. It's not for us so the game. Three other games for them on the nationals. Last year to them. No no no Dad Dad Dad. Does Dan even know who Eric Like an all in the name. I think fame. I think those things because it's a recent name. It's from the last couple of years because he started like a season like an absolutely care where he was like the leader in home runs for a while. Right brew crew. He's a net. Now who else is playing? I saw Regnier pitchy gave up two runs. I think they're trying to trade him. Jeremy she told us go row. Hus- Francisco Savelli Matt Camp. Marlin Matt Camp was there. You got three at bats. Not Very productive isn't going to make the team. Yeah I think he's GonNa make the he'll be like the Senate Neil Walker Britain Brinson having a good spring by what he does. Is he going to keep his job? Fight for For Measuring Rosser. She call him. He's going to be in right field but this we should call him Lewis. Brinson sprinzen bring because he's good by lowering springs Princeton. Yeah and tried to and there's some there's some pretty sure last year you bet like four hundred sprint. I like it thank you. That'll be he's having a good spring which I'm happy for him. I really hope things work out for him here and if you feel connected them because of that bit that we did where you're like if he turns out to be a bit. I mean he tried to get him. In an ornate. Have a vested right not that you feel like if he totally like is terrible this year and is a minor leager and just like we feel like like in the pie chart of the responsibility for that not responsible. I don't think that it would be our fault rite aid if he didn't do well this year but like I do looking back feel guilty just because it was like billy. I understand his best baseball of his career. After that right I think if you get he did go on actually kind of going to show. You know we're doing there. It was people that took it very seriously and to write articles about us. Say it so yes name into speak it in Miami lose again so hey. On moral victories we got six points. Yeah drew bizarre bizarre game so for those that didn't watch which was probably plenty of you because it soccer inter Miami. Go Up one zero score. The first goal in franchise history two minutes in and really dominated this match outside of like a two minute sequence. The first sixty minutes of the game. I was like this team. Cd's Sierra would bad look bad. So Inter Miami scored their second goal of the game. Go up two zero Lewis Morgan. Who played very well. We got him from Celtic. Which is a bigger club over? In Scotland he put in one hell of a performance a goal takes deflection goes in and play stops and it allows VR and the officials mls to review an instant incident. That happened like three minutes. Prior were Torres was in a one V one situation against a D. C. United Attacker. That was on the counter-attack tore his uses his hand. It was clear Ham. Yeah I mean it was a clear handball. They remove Inter Miami's goal. They take that goal off the board because they say that goal should have never happened because several minutes prior Torres had this handball. And it's a straight red for Torres and a PK FOR DC united. So a two-goal swing an-and down the I saw the replay but I didn't realize that it was three minutes or whenever you said prior thought that it was like in the play or like just prior to the play it was it was a build up there but I felt like an eternity back or like you were very confused why they took the goal away so much time in past from that. One V one situation. I was thinking that it was closer together so I was fine with the goal gang taken away because it was a clear handball. I didn't know you could give someone a red card for handball. I knew you could if on defense like defensively. If you were defending a goal I know you could. I didn't know on the offensive side that you could. So if to the letter of the law it's the right call right. But officials are there to sort of interpret the rules and realize look. It was very punitive penalty penalty. Because not only. Do you remove an Internet Miami goal and take that away the board not only. Are You giving these united? Pk which eighty something percent of the time ends in a goal you into Miami loses a player not just for this match has been playing very well for Inter Miami. He's out for the next game against La Galaxy and they retire fire. We'll get to that in a second but these united then go up eleven to ten men and then almost immediately score another goal. Go to one. I thought what the really interesting part was. How lonzo responded in Miami actually control the match with ten men had fifty five percent of the possession down a man and probably deserved a point but in Miami lose again on the road zero points on the air with a negative to goal differential. Come home to play the most disappointing team in. Mls by four L. A. Galaxy. There are fighting in the stands. Teach how to eat though is not getting any shots off their off. If you watch this team play as the worst looking soccer you would see. Just guy runs to the corner flag. Send a terrible cross. They do that thirty times a game and then they just brush their hands off and on to the next one not having said all that. We're not going to be favored against them right. They're still the galaxy and they're coming into a team. That's never won I. I'm not entirely sure I would say that. It's probably one of those situations where both teams are slight plus juice. Yeah and sort of like pick aside. I think the Miami Crowd in at Lockhart Stadium is going to be fantastic. And if you're just looking at recent form I don't know how galaxy can figure out everything that's going on with them. They should be a lot better than that she chutney tow came into. Adolescence was expected to challenge. Velez the best player in this league. And he's been invisible for two matches but it'll be curious to see what sort of atmosphere will be at Lockhart Stadium. I'm super long or eighteen. I'm not sure I second Nice Stadium. Pictures I've driven by it. Looks like they. Everything's prefab construction right so the support section. That's it's all bleachers an aluminum style but they really like focus a lot of the money on at the the non-camera side where the the players come out because that's also part in part training facility. So are you going to tomorrow? There's I'm going tomorrow. I think I'm going. Yeah because I want to get bearings at the stadiums. There's all sorts of questions about the parking and I don't really know what the situation is there supposed to be a fan zone where people that's sort of where the designated tailgate area is so. I hope to get some more information because I wanted to go because I don't want my first time going log car to be for the first match. And just be supercomputers tomorrow. Their practices open the season ticket holders. So yeah and I also wanted to sort of gauge like what this Travel Times GonNa lay it land. Yeah I imagine it's going to be some bad traffic for me going there around that time times the gates open at six. I think you're going to have the training from seven days like they're actually training for an hour from seven to eight. Yeah I WANNA see my seat so I want to just get used to it because this thing when I when I agreed to season tickets my seats weren't even like I didn't see a Spec on it let alone like actually being built right so I'm very curious to see what actually spent money on. I'm still curious if they're going to do a dry run and not dry. Run it a test run and phillies stadium up so we can make sure that you're gonNA be there tomorrow. I imagined. Yeah Chris just like taking his here cringe like like kicking pointers. I'm in the lower level is only. I don't know if I'm in the I'm in. I'm Mike Rowe twenty-something I'm like towards I'm not very the middle right now I don't know. I think I'm towards actually the bleachers. Yeah I know. I'm I think I'm in the twentieth. Actually Billy Billy makes the point the Supporters Section. There is like a certain angle that you have to that you can't push past And Inter Miami for their Supporters Section. One and make it as vertical as the analyst rules. Allow that's idiotic. I don't get what you mean by that it's really steep. Okay forget like between each like I think like the basically if you lean forward you're gonNA fall. I think the most extreme angle that you can get at an MLS stadium according to Code. I have to look this up. But I believe it's around twenty a set a twenty seven degree incline. Why did they want it to be a steve as possible because you get like a wall of sound super intimidating in the supporter section? You feel like you're just facing a wall of intimidating sound and vibrant supporters wound. That's like have you been to? Marlins park the out the upper deck in the outfield. I don't like the home run porch. I think it's called. I have there. It's like I believe and I could be wrong here. But it feels like the steepest section of the the entire stadium and there's no harm in between the seats either. It's like the White Sox stadium was like you're climbing a ladder instead of just straight up at Marlins Park those are the tickets I was by and then I sit somewhere else. I want to white SOX ADMI head outfield seats and was so weird because the bullpen was like you. Don't get home. Run balls because they all go into like bad left. Field bullpen kind of stinks. What's the point go to I go to these games and catch a home run? Never got a home run ball you guys ever catch home run now now. I don't. I'm not a big fan of sitting in the outfield really. I tend to go. I'll go down the baselines before I'll go in the off. Have you guys ever caught like a ball of any kind of at a game? I mean Marlins fans if you're sitting in a section back in the like the Joe Robbie days like on a decent shot. I think I have gotten a ball like that. Where it's it was a foul ball hit into an empty section. I ran over. I've never gotten A. I've gotten balls from guys playing catch pre-game laws and me. I've gotten many of those but in actual foul ball like in action. It came to me. I don't think I actually have got hit by. Miguel Cabrera like foul ball. And you didn't get it well. This is what happens so I'm sitting in the upper deck. I have like a partial season plan. I'm like a sophomore junior something in high school and me and my friends got like a twenty game plan so it was like four of us and we're looking at third or fourth row fifth row. Maybe like in the upper deck behind home plate legs slightly off the first base side. Miguel Cabrera's batting so right handed people obviously fouled things off to the first base side and he hits a frigging rope. Like it's it's coming. Flying like directly add is and it's going up and we're in the upper deck but it's not like something that like like flying up. I asked right and I'm eating a lemon chill. I love it and I have the little wooden spoon in my hand and the meeting is delicious. Lemon chill and then I see the ball coming in the people in front of me like dodge out of the way and for whatever reason my natural reaction. I'm holding the Lemon. Show my left hand. Wouldn't little thing in my right hand and I'm just like catching lemon lemon lemon chill. I know I because of my experience. Brang baseball or a natural reaction for whatever reasons to try to catch with my left hand even though I'm right hand because that's the glove hand right so I take the lemon shot on my hand. I put it down our my hands. Frozen though from holding the lemon tuna thing just bang hits super hard in the hand and then like goes like into the little I'll so it goes into the island and some guy like two rows behind goes running around and he grabs. Hold it up. Like what am I? Talk Chain and give it to the kid. While you're you at the time I wouldn't have wanted it that way anyway. I love give it but I'll tell you what my hand was frozen then it was hit and then move. I put the lemon chill right back in my hand. Because he wore man it was like Roy's gotten a foul ball I've again afoul. No no no. No no what has to worry now. This isn't an almost situation. I'll be in Papa you almost get hit with a screaming liner from yeah We were sitting together. We're talking about school. Mets life right and handy went up and we were the first base side and Hanley followed a ball offs so hard. It went straight your in front of poppy to save him. No actually I kind of leaned way. Poppy in front of you know I lied to my left in the ball with under his arm on the best right off the seat he was like this on the job by poppy. Just getting out of the way barely moving. Yeah it ricocheted. Originally it away in a kid picked it up at me and probably looked like struggling. Now that strike me as a guy that takes a glove to a ball game. I used to not anymore and I didn't have a glove that they otherwise caught that ball jam jam. I've never caught a foul ball but my I did get a ball from game. One time it was more like the whack is right. I wasn't even in the stadium. I had left the stadium. This is back in the ball game. Sometimes how boss? Yeah Yeah because Mark Light Stadium especially like the vast majority of the foul balls. Leave the stadium entirely. So I was watching Jared Weaver pitch because he was like some Hotshot Long Beach State prospect. I think he went number. One in that drafter. It was bad longer say was a glaciers. Were high drafted also Long Beach. State like their baseball team goes by the DIRTBAGS They're like the dirtbags for just that sport. Yeah and everything else. I forget what their name is. But it's not the dirtbags so it was. It was a cool like vibrant atmosphere and Mark Lights. Eighty one. Weaver got pulled as I saw that. Let's go and as I'm leaving. I leave the entire grounds. Why not just like the concourse and everything like that like? I'm outside working. You're gone gone all just like lands at my feet and this was back in the day where you had to give the ball back because they were on a budget like. Oh man scooped it up. Have that ball to this day. Yeah Yeah where? Is it somewhere my garage in a box? I have like a sports memorabilia box newspaper clippings in my garage. That's probably like been eaten by Silver Fish. Actually have a good I. I for a long time kept every sports ticket and I have like a big box of just sports tickets super bowl tickets world series tickets. I'm eventually going to make like a picture frame For like an office now I will eventually probably when I'm like forty away. No that's how most prized possession. This box like my sporting stuff box. I've kept majority of my credentials again over my quote unquote started doing that. I've already what's like the one that you're like. I don't need to save this one. Actually when you say that around the what will you don't need any of them there in? Downey they went over the one from Miami Heat Media Day this past and put it in a frame. We go to wheezy Gary. Who's calling us from Albuquerque New Mexico? We Gary Your name boy from Albuquerque. Shot from my boy steak sauce as well since his love from the board. Okay I look like Adam Sandler and Matt Barnes mixed together if you can picture. Kinda funky combination Lakers Matt Barnes kind of an Caterpillar. It I get it with shoulder length. Curly hair though. All they know so. Yeah Anyway about these baseball MO MO in the fourth quarter after taking all his muscles off to get that from Barnes Jason Momoa. What's up boys you know? I don't get taste that I say words every once in a while to Well I got the show. When Dan I describes the guy's name on the bow. I can't hear the bears name anymore. Chris Talita I can't even say half the time right any work anyway no. I don't want to try that Shit but I'm we gary 'cause you guys had a sleepy Gary on one time. It seemed like everyone involved with him. He spoke to me and wanting to pay much to have a little bit. Right is your name actually Gary. Oh My name is Gary David V. he'll I mean you're the second. How'd you end up in a in albuquerque with the name veal Born and raised. I'm my family came from Spain. About one hundred fifty years ago they were the Montana hills we just gotTA DNA tests done. I had a half brother in a very awkward manner. But that's not what I call the manner in which you just got the paperwork. Sounds like he didn't WanNa talk about brought it up. Yeah so my dad came home one day after my parents are going through a divorce restitution but a lot of people go through it. You know statistically speaking. That's true well they're going through this and my dad. He signs up for ancestry. Dot Com profile. People are doing it at work in Los Alamos and they're all trying to connect with each other because Sorry about the sponsored thing but DNA. Website whatever generic. What have you uh Lincoln with a lot of people in New Mexico. Well it turns out that he matched with a son that we never knew about and he hasn't gotten back to us. We don't know anything about him Me and my dad kind of on the outs. But he hasn't heard anything really. I'd like to meet him. He's like a bonus brother but I I'll be patient with a force anything. How do you know how old your bonus brother is there now a brother? That's the thing. My Dad is kind of like a my chief most. Super Suave Dude. So He Kinda could've conceived health take conceive a child anywhere along the line yeah. I'm thinking that he's older than me. I'm hoping that he wasn't doing that with my mom. And Yeah just weird awkward situation. I should've called Jerry. Springer is more he still on the air he is. I saw him. Yes Assam. Last week I originally started. I don't know if these guys aren't sponsored. Also Jerry Springer is still around. But he doesn't do the Jerry Springer show anymore he has he's judge Jerry. Judging wears a robe and he looks ridiculous in it. Judy Judy still around. But she's about to be done but Jerry's been I think been doing it for a year so judge Jerry. Jerry was a smear Cincinnati. Yeah I mean what he can do it. Yeah you judge Jerry kind of walked in his courtroom. Now he's got a guy he's got the whole. The exact same setup leaning like on the thing like right in front of People's faces the episode. I saw he. He was giving out a ninety dollar. He's like I rule in favor of the plaintiff for ninety dollars. I was like wow. This is big time stuff. Gary. Would you want to talk about today that you didn't really want to be down? And what do you want to talk about today? Oh I'm an open book. That's what I love you so much too because you guys are never afraid to shy away from this and my kind of topic ties into that. I WANNA broach a cool experience in a creative manner. I got front row tickets with my older sister to go see the cubs play the dodgers. And that's this Thursday Mesa Arizona at the cubbies home park will be right by the umpire. Be able to smell his lunch. I'm thinking of taking a sign either. Doing a show promotion a reference or a joke. You know some kind of societal statements clever and witty but not over the line and so I don't know whether they just have it be show specific and have that be an Easter Egg. I know I love that when I see that on other programs. But you don't think more general two. Adm can kind of laugh with even for Spring Ball. I think it'll be doesn't allow for sign's behind home plate because it can distract the pitcher Games and In between innings. Okay so now well actually. Yeah I've camera lights come on. I'm trying to figure this out before I even doing anything or should I just shut up? Enjoy the seats and I lean. I just don't know how inbetween innings of a spring training game is really going to make a dent career heads at though you have a good a good thought. The reason why I brought my dad up too. 'cause I KINDA WANNA tie that into the sign and say who's the bigger the Astros or my dad. I mean that would be a funny sign. Nc and people identify with that and if the cubs broadcasts on it they might put the area. I showed it before the game started or during commercial break. That's I mean that's your best shot to get on like a sports center of that. I'd say something along. I'd say something. Astros Related Your Best. Shot to like get on sportscenter. Make News like you having a sign that says I didn't ask for any of this isn't gonNA. It might get a picture on the head and like someone reach reach. We'd like our show but I don't know they told me to do roy get that they will. Yeah that's that was owned in popularity as someone did that recently. So you don't want to. You know you kind of want to think of a line that no one sportscenter you guys can see what the mixture of Adam Sandler Matt Barnes looks like right. I like the light. I'll take a picture and send it to us and we'd know right. I like maybe maybe one sign on one side of it do a show a show line and then on the other one do cheater line. Astros one yeah or just Lewis Brinson to the all star game because we used to do that uses solicit photos of people takeoff on our proudest moment. No no but thank you so much origami and stuff. Do you know the whole thing like four times. Forget it in. They're gonNA be lenient about. This is what you said. Cardboard monstrosity give you some advice in terms of this sign situation. So I if you'RE GONNA you're GonNa do the Astros won like with your dad and whatever. I'm not endorsing this behavior at all. But I've heard I've heard that maybe your best bet is to write something on the sign that says like go whatever team you're rooting for. And then maybe have them with you and then you could make the other side once. You're inside because then they won't take it away from you because it's a nice supportive side. He play as opposed to one. That's critic or what if I have the words fit into the letters of the station being aired on like the signs say? Espn is that every sports people. Yeah Niagara I have no idea where I was going through. Now Yeah you. I'm with you every source people Niagara but do with whatever station the Games on. Can you actually make that sign every sports employer great? I'll put that on the back his DNA MLB network. So I don't know if they're gonNA show it every sports people that know every vote. That's great all right guys.

So I love being part of it witnessing it watching it and jumping in there with you in. We'd love you to be part of it as well. So if you can join head over to finding mastery dot net forward slash tribe. Now this week's conversation. Is with John Branca's in you, probably heard his name. If you're in the sport world, he spent the last decade plus studying in popularizing, the unique characteristics of the world's greatest athletes. So behind the scenes where you might not know his work. He's the co founder of base productions, but he's best known for his on air host and co creator of the ESPN EMMY award winning show called sports science and he's appeared in produced in over fifteen hundred segments. That's that's an enormous catalogue and those segments have been featured on ABC ESPN's enormous sport platforms. So through sports signs. The show John has appeared before over eighty million people annually for the last decade. That's that's that's a big time imprint and so he's won six Emmys written a New York Times bestseller for the perfection points where he really takes a look at where. Human potential was a convergence of Yuban potential from where we might be able to go, and where we are now and in that vein when he's got an idea he just goes for you just flat out puts it on the line in it makes sense as we dig into this conversation that his philosophy is perfectly aligned with the extraordinary success. He's had. And so his philosophy is to make something out of nothing in. It's basically been a backbone for how he's created what he's created in the sport and television world, so in this conversation, we discuss what gives him the confidence to go forward into not let fear of failure fear of what other people think of him to get in the way of him pursuing his dreams, and I love this conversation. I love how his mind works. What he's created of lobbying a friend with John. And so this is not just about sport by any means, it's not about human potential. It's about the practices and the organization of thoughts to help. Him away you now become your very best. So with that, let's jump right into this conversation with John Branca's, John. How are you? I'm incredible. Like, I I'm just awesome today. I feel great in. That's just kinda how I roll I roll out of bed, and I feel awesome. How long has that been the case for you? Is that is that a lifelong thing or is this since you've done a credible things in the in in the industry? This is how I roll. I mean, it to be honest with you to struggle to get me out of bed. But once a mount in a mom, my two feet and great, and I and I use that word specifically where incredible I'm alive on breathing. Ready to conquer the day. Like, that's that is how it when? Everyone's like, do you feel? I'm like awesome. Incredible amazing. If I've been sick, I'll say, I don't feel so well, so but unhealthy, and I feel great does. That mean, your is it your body is it your emotional self is at your mental self is that your spiritual like when you say, I'm great, how do you slice stuff or how do you think about I slice at most? Spiritually like, I I'm spiritually in a great place today. Like him spiritually I feel good in by spiritually. I mean, I feel centered I feel in touch with the universe. And I feel like I've got a purpose today. Like, I know what I'm doing. I'm I have a plan for today. It won't go as planned and I'm ready to Bob in. We've okay. So spiritual were diving right into the to the heavy rocks. Absolutely. So the spiritual stuff is that purpose. Okay. You put those two in the same in the same. I are they the same or different for you between spiritual on purpose. So you talk about being spiritually centered. And then having purpose I believe that. We separate them. And we say, you can be spiritual. But with no purpose, and you can be purposeful without any spirit. Right. So to me the need to be fused together. And when I wake up I do fuse. The first thing that I do is pray wake up. I kneel down. I pray and I pray and I set an intention for the day. And I'm like, here's what's going to go on. I pray. I do my best. I really feel as though I am capable of doing that. And I believe that my purpose today is to perpetuate positive energy. So whatever that that task is that I'm doing my purpose is to perpetuate positive energy. And I do pray for the strength that that that happens. What pulls you out of that pulls me out of media trading positive energy? What pulls you away from that myself thought loops, you know, I pull myself out of it. I'll pull myself out of the game. I like to. Call it where I'll have a negative thought loop, and I'm such an A type personality. I'm so go go go go, go Lizzy. My wife calls me, Johnny one-speed. I'm like go. Go go go go, go stop. And where I where I will get off center is purely self inflicted. It's complete. I'm such a high strung individual. I'm so like we're going to do this. I will get a thought in my head that were on my oh my God. I can't get this out of my head. And I can't get out of my head. It's like having the hips when when you're putting you just can't get it out of your head in that happens in I have really intentionally especially in forty six. Now, I really tried to identify thought loops and say while this is an unhealthy thought loop in. I am putting too much emphasis on the negative outcome than the positive outcome. They're both equally. Likely to happen. And I've got to get out of that. And that's it. You know, I think that's going to be a lifelong. I think it's a lifelong struggle for everybody'll be lifelong struggle for me, but it's happening less and less. So I feel you know, each day each week each month two year, I make progress on getting out of those negative thought loose in for you. Are those loops about doubt is it about self? Critique there's only a couple of teams that come up. Right. Is it like or is it anxiousness? I'm not sure if it's gonna work out the loop released centers around really things that are out of my control the behavior of somebody else. That's where I get hung up on a loop there. Unfortunately, especially in the business that I've worked in. I mean, there are some obviously amazing incredible people that work with people I really love to work with. And then there are just you feel like you're walking through a minefield. And you're like those minds are people in those people could really throw a wrench in things in that. That's where the loops happened is my extrapolation of what could happen. If this person gets in the way, and is going to do this which leads to that which leads to let so I just had this conversation today as we were getting as driving to connect with you. My wife made that comment. She said, you know, there's people that purposely get in the way of other people's success. And I go come on like in. She goes, Mike, please. And you're you're saying the same thing. And I know that my rational head says, yes, there are bad evil disruptive people that, you know, but you're saying you're picking up on that same idea. Absolutely. In one thing that I have been that. I would say a strength is my ability to extrapolate. So I'll say I'm able to look at a landscape and say, here's what I think's gonna happen. And I been when I say, I'm right more than I'm wrong. And of course, you remember the things that you right more than you're wrong and good bias. Right. So I know that oh, I'm biased. But when I sit back, and I go, here's what's going to happen. This person's gonna talk to that person in that person's gonna flip out then they're going to go talk to this person. And the game of telephone is going to happen. And what happened in the origination of the conversation will be so completely out of wack that we're having completely different argument than we would have if we adjust nipped in the bud and had never. Happened to begin with like like more often than not. I'm like, I'm correct on on on seeing. What's going to happen? What I've come to realize is that. Yeah. I can extrapolate that out, but I need to be more comfortable with realizing. It's okay that that happens rather than being worried that man Bahira goes again, I need to be more bringing on I've seen in a million times. Okay. What you're ahead of the game in the US figuring out. What sport signs was in? So sports science has been around for a long time. And when I say long, I'm talking about sixty years and the idea that the Russians and Germans were doing some heavy stuff science long ago. Okay. But the American influence. Was late right. You started a show called sport science on ESPN started on FOX started on FOX. Okay. When you think of your craft what is your craft? It's an awesome question. And. I'm going to tell you what I believe my craft actually is my craft is making something out of nothing that is what my craft is. I am the kind of person that loves to say why not and when we made sports signs my business partner. Who's also my brother-in-law. He and I sat back, and we were in the right place at the right time doing the right thing, we had we had literally our production company had a sports background in science background. And when we put it together. I mean how boring of title sports science. I mean when we sold it to FOX they're like, we got to change the name. And I insisted that we keep the name because although sports science existed that term was it really wasn't part of our lexicon in even two thousand six people weren't referring to all the time. It wasn't something that was at people's fingertip, even though. Obviously existed way before we even thought of the show. But I might not think it's I I can't think of anything else that's on television. That's as that's like it, so call it. What it is. I'm like survivor what agree title, call it. What it is. I'm like, it's you can try to come up with some fancy name. That's nuanced. But if you're direct and just tell the audience, this is what you're going to get. Then when they arrive if they're entertained and educated at the same time, they're going to stay. And then all the sudden that those words sports signs are cool. It's not nerdy. Geeky scientists, entertaining and occasional. So it was very deliberate in terms of sitting back and saying we're just at that, you know, in two thousand six there were hardly hardly anything. You could buy off the shelf to measure anything fashioning around sensors piecing things together in a really would like to think that obviously we didn't create. Eight this space, but we played a part in popularizing in making it known in people in using it in lexicon, more and more, you know, for sure, and it is something that is obviously your fingers on the pulse. Appro sports and even NCW collegiate sports like sports science. It's been in your European models for longtime, but in the US, it's just past the beginnings, you know, just past the beginnings like still in adolescents, but you've definitely had an influence in you know, the the lexicon having meaning. Okay. And then before that, this is what I I was attracted to your work fight science was was a show that you produced this. And so when you say you're Kraft, I want to talk about five signs invents in a minute. But you said your craft is building something from nothing. Yes. Okay. And that something when you say nothing, do you mean like the resources are barren or the ideas are barren? I'd like to say it's a blank canvas is it's just a blank canvas. What show are you going to do next? What what are you as a person? What are you gonna do next? It's just as blank canvas and fight signs came from another show that was called. Exa may that was on the Discovery Channel. And it was kind of a it was kind of fight science light. But it did very well on the Discovery Channel. And when we had to reinvent it and start to make something it was again, my my partner, and I sat down we said, you know, it'd be really cool is if we took the science aspect and blew it out just like went to the max in that was if we get the world's greatest martial artists to come in punching kick the crap out of a crash test, dummy, I mean, it's not even built to to do that. How do we modify and give people in image that they haven't? Even imagined in their heads. That's building something on nothing that sane God. Let's let's do something. You have not seen before. That's what I'd like to do. And that's what I in in terms of being creative and just even in daily life. I like to say it's a blank canvas. And I'm gonna make something on nothing so dance your question. I think it's I think it's kind of it's I don't think it's that the ideas. It's like oh. And nothing idea. It's that it doesn't exist in the world right now. Okay. So. What I was hoping that you take the conversation to where do your ideas come from which was really tough question. And I don't expect to have a full answer on it. Because it's probably one of the hard questions for humans where two thoughts and ideas originator happen at how does that work? So, but for you, if you take a pass at it, you've had a disruptive you've been disruptive agent in television. This the space between science and sport and action in entertainment. So where did maybe we can be more granular where did the ideas for fight science? Come from. It came from. It really was marrying. The two skill sets that we had developed in producing sports in producing science. I mean, literally that come from the gonna take sport in science and put those two together to that originated with the show XM extreme martial arts. Sweet as a production company, we had the contracts for the Washington Wizards in Washington Capitals, and we're doing all of their sports production than we got a bunch of other teams as well. So we have this expertise in producing sports content. Then the Discovery Channel was launching the science channel. And we did the first live interactive science programs called science live. We did the young scientists challenge. We did a bunch of shows that were all just purely science-based shows my partner, and I were like, wow, you know, would be really cool is to combine these two things. And there was a conversation that my partner had with the GM of discovery at the time, and he was talking about how you know. All these great masters of. Martial arts or fading away. And we need to somehow preserve in honoring in then we Mickey my partner, and I sat down, and he said, you don't this would be a perfect application of taking a scientific look at what the masters were able to do. And that's where we were like, oh, we could do this. It had never been an idea until someone's like we need honor these martial arts masters, and like you can offer it through science and say, well, what did they do? What made them a master whip start? We'll what differentiated a style that. That was really the beginning of it. And then fight science took it to a whole their level where we're like now, which style generates more force. And why what is it mean? What is it Connecticut linking chain mean? And where is the energy being drawn in? Where is the weakness in the style in terms of generating force through the end of your fingers or the end of your. Toes like where would the blocking occur you start getting really granular into it? And I'm like, this is some fascinating stuff that I haven't seen broke down before. So one that door opens that will, you know, what was interesting you. It was in the laboratory, which I'm sure that either you or your brother in law. I'm not sure which one had the the sports science background influence. It was really it. Really? Honestly was both of us in. He and I were he's, you know, I'm a science geeky disci- Gagan were both sports nuts. He was a great combination. All that stuff was happening in the laboratory, you know. And I don't know if enough people that might be listening know, what a Connecticut chain is. So can you walk them through share? That's pretty simple. I mean, it's pretty simple. You think about it as the perfect kinetic chain would be a whip. Write your hand is the fulcrum in your flicking the whip forward, you're stopping your hand all the energy is being transferred to the end of the whip. It's a perfect transfer of energy because the tip of the whip when it cracks is actually breaking the sound. And barrier. That's how that's what the sound is actually breaking breaking thunder. So a Connecticut leaking chain. If you think about a punch the energy is created from the ground just like a wit. It goes up through your legs and through your hips, and your torso and your shoulder and ultimately down through your hand. But it's it's a chain. And when you look at someone and say how can they throw a ball so hard in there the same size as I am. And I can't throw at that hard. It's because there are points in your Connectik chain where the energy is being blocked, and it's as simple as that. But when you start diving deep into finding these little tweaks in a motion as to how you can unblock it or reduce the amount that it's being blocked. It's amazing. How performance can be increased. Okay. Quick break to talk about our new partner. Will that's W H O O P will I wanna talk about travel for minute the effects of early morning or late night. Apple they can have a lasting impact on concentration and mood and sleep and appetite in. There is some research that for every time that we travel that it takes about a day to catch up. So knowing the effects that jetlag and time zones have on our performance is really important, and we was taking a deep dive into the effects travel has on readiness, and that's one of the benefits that I've really enjoyed about. Who is them providing data to help manage for me, sleep? Antifa. Better understanding of the facts that travels having on me. So if you travel, this is a great tool and instrument, and if you don't travel to have a better understanding of how stress and strain, and you know, just plano get after it in life. Whether that's, you know, working really hard late hours or compromise with some sleep here. And there like how does that impact your readiness to perform, and if you haven't tried out there technology yet, they just create an amazing offer for finding mastery listeners. One encourage you to check it out your first month is now free when you sign up at. Whoop dot com Ford slash finding mastery. So you've got gotta use the code finding mastery. All one word all caps at swoop W, H O P dot com forward slash finding mastery. And with that, let's jump right back into this conversation. So what are couple insights that you've had you know, what have some of the best done. What I see is. Most importantly there is no one right answer. I wrote a book called the perfection point was you know, that anybody can find it was New York Times bestseller about what is the best. We can do as a human being the fastest. We can run the hardest. We can throw a ball highest. We could jump, but we sit back and look at the best and you put them under a microscope. You realize we're never we can't reach perfection. So all we can do is do the best with what we have. And that definition of what we have started a very early age. How do you throw a ball when you're three and that when people say, it's muscle memory. There's no such thing as muscle memory. Must muscles. Don't have memory, right. It's just neural pathways that have been burned. It's more neural memory in terms of a physical motion. But the best of the best make. Most of what they have. And they're cool with that. But they're not satisfied. They're like, well, how do I get better without reinventing the wheel? How do I get better with what I actually have in that desire to get better? And that realizing this is what I got is really what the best identified. They don't say. Well, here's where I am stop. They're like, here's where I am. How do I get better? But I can't reinvent the wheel. Okay. And then you've also taken a look at swats of data and just before the mikes turned on you're talking about running backs. And so that's a fascinating finding that. You have the walk us through that show people like to say bigger, stronger faster is better. If I say don't be fooled by that. I mean, obviously if you're running a hundred yard dash or one hundred meter dash, obviously, you have to be the fastest like, so we can but that's not the analogy for life. I like to say this analogy for life in football's a great analogy for life in the position of running back as a great analogy specifically because people if you're just sit back, and you're the GM of a team, and you go who do I want running the ball instinctively? We would say I want the fastest guy in the field. Like, that's an interesting idea the fastest or someone will say Ellen. Biggest I want the guy. Nobody can tack Bill, but belco. Yeah, I wanted to absolutely that's what I want. But I say, but if you want to running back. It's going to be around in his versatile, and it's gonna have a long career with you and help build your team in your franchise. You actually want someone who's big enough fast enough, but not the biggest fastest. If f equals M A forces mass, tons acceleration. The bigger you are the greater the force you experience. So when people say all that big running backs gonna run over that safety. He's experiencing the same amount of forces the safety is to object that collide basic Newtonian physics experienced the same amount of force. So the bigger you are the more force you experience every single time on the flip side of that faster. You are the more force you actually, experienced. So we look at who has the top five running backs of all time by yards gained. None of them are over six feet. They're not that big right there. I mean, you look at Emmett Smith look at Walter Payton, Barry Sanders LT. Look at Curtis Martin. None of these guys over six feet tall. Then you say. Well, how big would they were beast? There are beast. I'm like Walter Payton was barely two hundred pounds. Like, he's not that big there. And then they say, why would them be super fast? Actually when you look back at it Emmitt Smith. Bye, no matter what standard you use was considered a slower running back. So how is he so good because he if the if you just think about it basic physics the slower on moving the easier, it is for me to change direction the lighter. I am the less foresight experience when I go to the ground. So Emmett Smith is that perfect running back, and when people are you calling Emmett Smith slow, not not relative to the human population. But relative to guys who are super fast, and here's another crazy stat. So this ad is true. And it's if you look at the ten fastest forty yard dash times on the offense of side of the ball based on NFL combine. Electronic timing of the top ten. To have the thousand yards within a season the other eight don't have a thousand yards in their careers. Whoa. That just tells you when people go you can't teach speed like, right? Well, if you line up, and you see a guy just blazing the forty. There's an eighty percent chance they they're not going to be an NFL star. And when people go that's not true, go look it up. It's true and go look in. Everyone's like, Mike. I know for fact, my favorite player ran up four three. I'm like he ran a four six. So you like, let's not just get hung up. And that's it's hard for people to realize don't get hung up on the numbers. I love that in. You know, the Malcolm glad will for what it's worth had that interesting finding that. If you're born in the first three months of the year, then you're more likely to become a pro hockey player. Okay. Okay. So we can get lost in some of that. There's a yes. In a note to that. Okay. But I I love when data tells the story I really enjoy that. And so eighty percent chance that if you're the fastest one of the top ten in the combine you're not gonna not gonna. You're not going to even have a thousand yards in your career. And is that because injury is in its injury rate. The only way to be that fast is to have to use your power to weight ratio has to be one where your muscles are able to propel your frame so fast that you're able to achieve a time that others can't she frame. Can't be that big. You know, it's like Ferraris running into Cadillacs, you it's like over time maybe on a Cadillac if we're going to do it like a some derby. We look at Chris Johnson. And look Chris Johnson was a great running back first season or two, right? Is he going to go down as one of the greatest running backs of all time is he going to the hall of fame. You're like he had a great season. What do you think Zeke, Elliot? So I think he's the he's the Goldilocks zone, man. He's in we had him in the lab. He's in that. Perfect strata. Yeah. Yeah. He's got that built. Yep. He's got the is the perfect prototype to be somebody who could be around for a really long time. A new you're friends with marshawn Lynch cheer, and he's outside of that that typical design he was an incredible player. And I think if you were just looking at data take personality out of it. If you're just looking at data, you would say historic makes sense because he's large he's Lawrence wide. Do you wanna know? What's really interesting is like the that. I really love peak carols analysis, and we actually did analysis on you know, the famous the infamous pick that that Russel through on the goal line against the patriots was like you just give the ball the marshawn Lynch the odds, actually, the statistics say, they actually aren't that. Good because everybody knows he's getting the ball. And he can't get the one yard jet. Not because of his ability because everybody knows he's going to get the ball. So it's better to throw a short pass than handed off statistic. Weekly speaking, a motionlessly, everyone will say forever. How did you not give the ball marshawn Lynch? You know? It's a love that you did that analysis and I saw it. And it's easy that you would bring that up now. Because like, you know, it's like okay mic like statistically aboard out. Like, you know, like, yeah, I'll tell you being in that stadium. Was there to a were you there? Oh, yeah. Okay. There wasn't a person in there less. Maybe a couple of coaches on you know, on our side that didn't think that marshawn was going to get the ball. Right. I mean, the whole crowd was like just handed to marshawn not knowing that. We're one for five on the goal line with marshawn that year. That's not very good. And if they brought out their big the big largest men in the building they brought them out the stop the run it was beautifully designed to put a pass in the on the goal line or up in the corner. And it just unfortunately, you know, it didn't pan out fully so and but. It didn't work without being in that stadium. I've never been at a sporting event where something gigantic happened in. I will say that it was outside of the collective crowds imagination the reaction within the stadium was so delayed. It was not you know, Butler makes the interception in everybody. Immediately Leno my God, it was like everyone's asking each other. What what he didn't do that didn't just happen, right? It was so delayed. I've never I've never fell a whole stadium. Just say why it was like beyond our imagination in that. That's the trap actually for. I think most people in intensive environment. Is that our mind wants to figure it out? So we get ahead of ourselves. The stadium will how many people were not stadium ninety thousand nine. What is the was maybe a hundred thousand Arizona is a big state. Mm-hmm. Yeah. It was a big. I don't know what the whole, but the say ninety thousand bail hold a lot of people. And so that ninety thousand we got ahead of ourselves. Right. And I'm sure there was some that were not all they're still more play, of course. And most people's minds wanna get ahead of themselves to try to predict safety or no hostility, or whatever, right and happens in subtle ways in social settings. But that's really part of what our brain is designed to do. And most people got ahead of themselves celebrating on the sidelines rating in the stands like, oh my God. Can you believe that the Seahawks are back at this position? Of course, they're gonna win all my God is just a handle. And then the pain that came with. It's almost like walking down walking down your stairs seeing the Christmas tree. You're seven years old. You see the shape of the box that you've been wanting in hoping for its wrapped, just right? And you know, that it's the thing that you've been wanting and you open it up, and it's. Not the thing. It's a thing that looks like the thing. But it's not the thing. And that's like in you do remember that look like or feeling like, absolutely. And it kind of goes back to what I'm what I was saying about extrapolating, right? You extrapolate in went you had a whole. I mean, you you had hundred million people who are extrapolating at that moment. Think of the courage. It took to say now we should pass it right now. This is when you point to a guy like p Carroll who you know inside and out, and you say how's that guy? Such an amazing coach does he freak out to sea panic under pressure is he a guy. That's like. Oh my God. I'm nervous. Not sure what to do. Where is he more like someone in the in the special forces? He more like a navy seal when things are going crazy. I can I can see I can the chaos is going on. But I can I see an opportunity here. I'm not gonna jump to a conclusion in a make. I'm gonna make a decision I can make it. I don't have to be a robot. But I can make a rational decision when things are going crazy. And at that moment, the courage to make that call people will look back and say, it's the worst call in history. But statistically, it's should work. And we talked to Malcolm Butler and think about this so Butler as we all know certainly wasn't the star of the patriots defense. This is the defensive back who stole the ball or intercepted the ball from Russell on the Golan. Right. When we talked to him and said why how'd you jump that route? He said in literally in practice the week before leading up to it. He got burned on that exact play. And coach Bela Chac, let him know that will never happen. And he just said as soon as I saw that play. I just jumped it now, it could imagine this imagine if he hadn't made that mistake in practice. I mean, imagine if it hadn't sunk in that own my gut he was. Wasn't a star. He wasn't. He didn't have the ten million dollar contract. He's like, oh my God. I got cookeville. Check mad at me about this one thing. That's now stuck in my mind in I'm in a position where I sense. That's the thing. He got mad at me for. So I better jump it. And he didn't have the ability or he had the ability not get frozen in that fear that he was out by his coach the head coach. Right. And he didn't freeze their like, it's extrordinary how this all went down in the butterfly effect of why do they even practice that in all of these sequences that took place, and I've never told the story. I'm gonna tell you the story. I think it's fun is that so my wife is there and afterwards. You know, we huddled back up in. It was like all right. How was that? Like because it was intense and locker of the most intense emotions that I've ever felt in one southern sure right? It was everything related to grief that you would imagine. There was. Denial. There was searching inuring. There was anger. There was sad. There was times time right alpha males in locker. Okay. Feeling a lot. So afterwards. I connect with my wife, and she goes I missed. No. She was in stance as we mean, you missed it. She goes our son was like five at the time. He added to the bathroom. So she thought to herself. Oh my goodness. Okay. And she said, you know, buddy. Can you hold it? And he's like no really have to go. Okay. So he doesn't really care about the game. You know, little five year old. He's got to go to the bathroom. So she has a quick moment to herself while we're on the one yard line. Okay. And let's make a beeline. Maybe we can you know, maybe this time out or something. So she goes to the bathroom, and then she hears the crowd, just kinda go crazy. But a weird crazy to your point rent. And so she looks up and she sees in. No, she she listens. And she his it's been an interception like someone on the loudspeaker are interested in. So she goes. Oh, no. And my five year old says what happened and she says Seahawks lost, and he paused, and he said, this brilliant. He said what a shame. Mommy. They all worked so hard. To bring him down to the locker room the innocence that worked so hard which is true best in the world work, really, really hard. What did you find out from a recovery standpoint from a recovery from Claire show? No from sports science in terms of recovery of an athlete resilience, mentally or physically either both are fascinated show. Here's what's fascinating is that genuinely the best will take any event. No matter how big or small and put it tuck it away in a spot that provides them with that little bit that extra motivation. Right. Jordan would take a slight. And remember it and say I'm filing that one away right tiger. We'd be like I I heard what you said about me. I got that right in my head. I know what you wrote about me. I got that in my head there. When people say, oh, I don't read the media and whatever complete lie, right? They know it's out there and they use it as fuel. That's. A little bit different that about people who are great at athletics or anything else is that they can take something that's negative in use it as a driving force. And I have I have a great story. I actually have never have never told anybody this. This is I've never actually never told anybody in this. Similar to Nath lights so early in our development as a production company. We had an investor that was interested in buying the company, and we sat down, and we discussed what we thought our company was worth and the investor. Laughed at what he thought we were worth. And he said, you're just delusional and my partner, and I this is this way before sports signs said delusional and on almost a daily basis. It'd be like, hey, let's let the two of us who are delusional go make something happen. And we would use that as this fuel rather than you know, what if you were to make a bet he probably was right that we were delusional in that it wasn't going to work out because most companies don't work out, but we made it work out. 'cause we had little voice in the back of our head of like oh delusional. And I remember being on the set especially of exa may where we had to build this huge giant elaborate set and literally making I like look at how delusional we are. We use that word stuck with us. I mean, use it as such motivation. Yeah. So chip Bizet. Yeah. It was a chip that. Thank god. He said it, right? Then you say to yourself what if he hadn't said that as right, right? What if he hadn't essentially insulted us? I mean, it was a huge insult. So you're delusional. It's like that. I it. It's the dismissive nece. What about your history allowed you to use that rather than it use you because that can happen quickly and easily in its momentarily, the we don't have an understanding of the poor snus porous -ness of the human mind. But right, sometimes things come in. And sometimes they don't right. And there's certainly things that you've had in your life that somebody has said to you, and it's gone in. And it's Fessard, and you've watered it, and it's grown in. It's not good. It's not it's a weed. Right. And this was it had the potential to be we'd but it didn't make it in. Can you can you unpack that just a little bit? Like how what about your history allowed you to use something for good? For a moment when we were told that we were delusional at that moment, the company wasn't that big? We weren't a huge force, you know, in in the industry at all, right? We we hadn't created sports. Ian's hadn't created exa may or or or fines or anything, and we sort of sat back. And both of us were like being called delusion. Like, they're very very few things that you could be called that are more insulting to someone. Who's created like saying delusion, I'm like into me? I'm such a fanatic about words. I'm so specific about the words news. I'm like delusional. How could you have used that in a non insulting way you meant that as an insult? That means that your saying, I am delusional. Meaning what I see happening is just a Mirage. And I knew I always knew within myself. I'm like what I'm when I feel like one of my strengths is making something at a nothing. So that is that I see down there is actually it's it's actually there the trees there the water is there. I just need to keep running after it in when you feel like you're never gonna get there. I'm like. I'm so stubborn, and I'm so I believe in myself, I believe in my 'cause I believe in I'll get there. I don't know how long it's gonna take me. I don't know how many twists and turns. But I'm gonna that water exists. All right. So that's a good point here for a little quick break to talk about our new partner halo neuro science. The underlying technology is trans cranial direct current stimulation T D C S as it's known by. And it's been around for a while. It's been researched for at least about fifteen years and their product is used by many world class athletes right now US Olympic teams players in the NFL NBA in PG tour. Lots in what's really cool about that? Is that it's a product that is on the leading edge and some of the best in the world are working to understand how it can help create a competitive advantage for learning for them. And it's not reserved for just elite, athletes, and all ideas you wear halo sport for about twenty minutes. And that's a best practice in you do that before your training session. And what that does what the neuroscientist of their team believe is happening is that it creates for an hour after that twenty minutes, hyper learning in. Virement where your brain your motor cortex is primed to absorb more to make more connections in personally, I'm ripping and running I'm incredibly busy, and I've been using Hello sport to make my workouts, more efficient and more effective. And I had a limited time while I was learning a new skill which is training for thirty mile Pacific Ocean stand up paddle event. And it was my goal to maximize as much as I possibly could for the limited amount of time that have and that's why turned a Hello sport to look for that advantage. So to learn more about their product punch over to get Hello sport dot com for slash finding mastery. That's get halo h a ELO. Get halo sport dot com forward slash finding mastery. And they're offering a special deal for us for funding Masri listeners one hundred dollars off when you purchase using that link. So mixture used that link. It helps us it helps our business that helps their business and hopefully it helps prime your brain. To be more switched on to learn more effectively art so with that let us jump right back into our conversation. Your talent your craft is something from nothing is something from nothing, which is for many delusion a delusion of grandeur, even right? It's the Mirage that that you are looking at. But maybe you shouldn't be looking at right like your. It's the Mirage that you're seeing that might not be real does that more accurate. And so when he said that it was actually confirmation of your craft. He just couldn't see what you were seeing from nothing hundred percent. Okay. Totally get that. And really important as a takeaway to be very clear about what makes X person special. What makes you special is this, right? The ability to craft something from nothing, and that's probably something that you said to yourself over and over again, it was a belief. You had okay. Then he. Confirmed. That's all that was that was really nice. Thank you, very lot of reasons. Right. And you had fun with it. And all that good stuff. What gives you the right to believe that you can do something special? I think that's a great question. A lot in. I'm just gonna slightly rephrase it, and I'm gonna I'm gonna change the word special to great. What makes me believe that? I can do something. That's great cool. Right. I think that I think that they're synonymous in this case, the reason why I believe it because I think everybody can I believe that you're racing with everyone who's capable of being great. Now, there's that old phrase of everybody wants to be great until they realized what it takes to be great. Are you willing to keep going? Are you willing are you? So I like to use the word stubborn because I think it's actually a powerful words stubborn means you don't know any better. You're so stubborn. You're just set in your ways, and you're not willing to look outside. But when you're trying to achieve something it is so easy to analytically determine this isn't possible. It's super easy to prove that, but you have to look beyond that and say, you know, what I think the numbers are actually wrong in. I think that I can overcome that or the margin is so slim, I think I can do that in the reason I think I can do that in which if I would say making something out of nothing is a strength. But that's something has to be good. Right. It's got to be something. That's good. And when I use the word great something can't be great unless it's good enough to be considered. Great. And what I have never gotten hung up on. Is there? Some people who feel like the painting is never done. The song is never done. Like, it's never complete in my mind. I'm like I'm gonna put a ball into play in on completely comfortable because I know it's good enough to be considered good now. Is it going to be great time will tell I don't know. Maybe will that song that when you hear? All these stories of people that are right songs in two minutes, then become the classics. They did know that that was going to be their big hit. They wrote in there like get it's good. It's good enough to be good. So I'm done with it. And I'm gonna put it down it became great over time. So if I were to say sports science, I think that we can sit back in a career and I'm saying in an objective way. You know, what that was a great idea? But it wasn't great out of the box. It was something that time had to happen. You know season after season show after show had to keep occurring and you had to keep honing that craft. So that it could become great, and you can sit back and say, yeah, it's great now when I say, oh, you know, what I think it's great. That's very biased point of view because I was involved with it in a turned out to be successful fed other things that have been successful where I stand back, and I'll give you a great example first movie, I made out of college got great reviews. Distributional Bubba, blah. I won't. Watch it because I know it's it's not good. It's just not good too. I don't think it's good. But other people might think it's good or great. But I don't know that that doesn't that's not what I'm going. I'm going for is more. It's gotta be good enough to be good. And then greatness will happen in time inside of that model when you make a mistake when you do something that is very average or below average. And it turns into something that is a cluster. How do you make sense of it like how do you deal with a mistake or something that is like really not very talented not skilled enough? I try to be brutally honest with myself. And I think. Abandoning an idea is a hard thing. It's a hard thing for me to do. But I'm willing to do it. And I'm willing to say, you know, what this is just it's on the wrong path. Maybe there's a kernel of something in there that would that is something that could become good. And maybe I need to extract that but the path Amman I needed I needed just abandon this path. Because I know this is I know in if I don't believe in it on never going to be able to create something out of it. Okay. Because that's the opposite of stubborn. So it's like you've got something on the other side of this. So stubborn in idea. And I would call that dogged perseverance like ominous stick with something persevered during the during all the twists and turns and storms and valleys, and I'm gonna stay with it. Because I believe in it. And I'm going to be dogged about it. That's okay. But this is opposite of that. Only in the case. Let's take let's let's examine gutting as a great great way to look at it. How early in the process do you identify? That's not gonna work. Then it I would say I can't even think of adventure where I got weighed on the road in then abandoned it like it happens super early for me where I'm like, you know, what this isn't worth my this, isn't this isn't worth it. Because I now now I don't see it. Okay. So once you get in the boat right in your little bit offshore. You're going. I'm going. Yes. So so the building the boat process setting the navigation before you even said in knowing the terrain knowing the ocean, predictions, whatever like you do all of that analysis. Upfront to be able to say once men, and I get a little off shore. You can give yourself a little room said ou infix fix that whole well enough, right? That's great analogy it's beautiful analogy because the idea of. Abandoning something. Remember, I like I would say one of my strengths extrapolating and you'll wake up you'll be like, oh my God. I just grant idea it's going to be awesome. And then you start in the very early stages of building that boat of Santo cabinet build this boat. We're going to push off the dock and we're going to go. And as you're building it. You're like, no, I don't I don't think vessels actually gonna take. I don't think it see where worthy. It's not going to handle the storm, and I can't see it anymore. So I can't I'm not going to build it. But once it's built like I'm going for in. That's that tell me about your parents. I know it sounds so trite to say, but like what were they like, what do you remember your childhood being like, all right? So that's a very few people have asked me about my family. But this is a really important so important because they literally crafted me, and I had the perfect balance. My parents grew up in a town. Called Harrisburg, Pennsylvania was coal mining town, and it was very antiquated. Even back in that day. It was a coal mining town. You know, it was divided between Russians and polacks. You basically had the Russians on one side polacks on the other. You weren't allowed to intermingle in boat. My parents both of their parents one was polish one was rushing so already they're setting the stage of all right? Will there is this barrier? Put in place we crossed over that barrier. We broke that down, and my mom and dad looked at the landscape and my mother's father. So my grandfather was the only person not only in his family, but in town to get a college degree, and he became the educated guy in town, and he was ostracized. He was abandoned by his family. They're like what you're too good for the coal mines. So my parents looked at this. And they're like, you know, what? There's a lot more to life, and they did not have a master plan. They said Rini to get out of this town, and they moved out of the town in the move down to the DC area. My dad was in the navy. He went to Georgetown, my mom was my mom's been nursing her whole life, and she was in. She she's in the field of they're saying in my father went from Georgetown and got involved in the private sector in. This was the private sector of computing, these new things in the late sixties early seventies. Where my God, they're they're going to be things called computers. They're going to revolutionize the world. He had to make a bowl choice because he was on that private track. He decided you know, what this private track? I'm going to be traveling all the time, and I don't want to do that. So he decided to work for the government. So he could. Be at every baseball practice. So that he could be dad and be around. But it came with a very heavy price tag. He worked for the government for twenty years and would come home in really be quite frustrated, and it was a day, you know, like getting up going to a when I say fairly passionless. It wasn't like his dream. But he got out of the town, and he had a great steady job, and he was able to raise his kit. But his job was not as passion you. Then out of the flip side. You have my mom nursing was her passion. And she loved everything she did. But she was always there for me. And my sister. She was always there. And so no matter what she would make sure that her work. Schedule was one that never conflicted with any of our games with when we left for school when we got home from school. She was there all the time. So you have this ridiculous, -ly nurturing mother. You have a father who is going to do what he has to do in order to be around. But he's not happy with it. So it created this culture where my parents literally looked me in the eye and begged me like when I say beg they said do what ever you want in life, just be happy? I mean, my dad is like just do whatever you want and my mom's like, just do whatever you want dream big. So we lived in Vienna Virginia. And I'm like, I I want to be an entertainment. That's what I wanted to. I don't know anybody. You don't know anybody. And I started was said, I think I have an idea for a movie I wanna make a movie and they're like go for it. How old I was eighteen. And at that time, they said, my parents said whoa back you you don't have to get a job. Why don't you try? To make that movie. Now, this is without start said, I don't even I've never read a screenplay at annoying thing. Batter. Screenplay Longonot, right? It is a book first. Okay. Hold on before you go. Why? Entertainment. What was it about entertaining? What what did you? So did you have a choice to go to school or not school? I don't know if it is. So I went to a great high school is called James Madison high school in Vienna Virginia. And I grew up in a town where if you Vienna. Virginia is like eight miles outside of Washington DC. Everybody's in politics. We're going to small town called Warrenton UK. Yeah. So that's not that far there and so ours was a little bit. Well, it was further removed politics. We didn't have barely had running water. Right. You know? So literally we had no street lights it was out there. But so for being I was always. I was I was just like Kadhamy of had high energy. I was a I was a very good student my whole life. I loved to learn, and I really enjoyed creating things so being in the student government with something that in elementary school as in student government high school on the student government, and I created events, and I created a thing called Mr. Madison that was a male beauty pageant might highschool that I'm like, you know, what before I leave this high school. I want to create something that's gonna last forever. And to this day, it's still exist and they're doing I love this. 'cause if you weren't doing it in entertainment or doing it with sports signs or fight signs or inverse order. You had this interest that you want to create something that stands the test of time. Yes, Anything that's great. Usually will the ages will determine what is great not our peers. Right. The ages will determine that in. So. Where did that come from? I know keep pulling on this. But where did that come from that you want to do something that lasts? I always felt from a very young child. I'm a very spiritual guy. You know, I was born and raised Catholic. I did not go to Catholic school. Because my parents wanted me to go to school with a diverse group. Right. They didn't want just Catholic. They're like now, you're going to go to the public schools in the grade schools in b with a little mix of people. It's great this desire to create something that lasts beyond me. I mean when I tell you what happened from a very young age. I pray morning, noon and night. And I'm I my relationship with God in the universe is one. Where I know. I'm I really am just a speck I'm in insignificant speck in this giant see of the universe. But as a little spec. How can I make sure that the thing that I do is going to leave a Mark that's positive when you're not hearing for me is. Oh, and then I decided to get into this negative thing that you know, yet left a Mark. But it was a really bad thing. I always wanted to create stuff that would leave a positive, Mark. So that at night when I prayed, I could say I did my best today. And that's what I always from a very young child when we sat around the dinner table. And we talk about my parents, creating me we talked about how is your day. And the question was always did you do your best today in was just drilled into me of you didn't have to get an A. He didn't have to get one hundred. You didn't have to be number one in something. But did you do your best? I had the same message, and it was pervasive for me growing up in many ways. It was this incredible gift because there were space lots of space in the other side. Sometimes I wonder what would have happened if they would've said, hey, listen. Why don't you stick with the sport? Or why don't you? You're like you've got a natural inclination in this part of your life. I'm glad they didn't. I'm really happy. Right. But I wonder what would how would been different. And so it took me longer probably than you to figure out what stride feels like right? Like I had short steps if we're thinking about efficiency of running I short steps for a long time. And then I had to figure out which drive is. I'm glad I did. Because I really appreciate it. And I feel like in many ways I can recognize when I'm in stride, and I can recognize others that are in stride. And there's a nice syncopation that takes place there because it's our Ganic. I didn't you can't. I don't think you can even use that language if you don't or Ganic learn it, so you figured out your stride earlier at eighteen and then did you go the traditional route of education or you say I'm going to write a book on going to turn that into a screenplay? And I'm gonna just kinda crack it is exactly. Yeah. I did. But to add to that stride. Here's how I think I got my stride from eighteen on. I think I got my stride because for a young kid in. Vienna. Was a pretty good baseball player. And there was you know in little league, I didn't make the all star team. And I remember like how crush wasn't was awful. Oh my God. And then you know in highschool something bad would happen. It'd be the crushing come home. And my parents told me straight up. He just said life isn't fair like you just have to accept the fact it's not fair. So don't try to don't try to take these things that are unfair and somehow blame yourself and be hung up on it just know as you move along tons of unfair things are going to happen. Those are the rules of the game. So do when you want and be cool with the unfairness that's going to happen because they're going to be roadblocks thrown up. So when I decided in college, I'm like, okay, I'm gonna writer. Book. I mean, it literally this came from. I did an independence. I was going to drop out of college. And my mom who is in education when she was running the nursing department at George Mason. She said I'll they were totally cool with me dropping out because I'm like, I know what I wanna do. And I don't think college is getting there. She just said what's your plan? And that's where the conversation was I want to be an entertainment. I don't think colleges can do it. For me. The dean of my colleagues had make up your own classes, do independent studies and create your own major because you're here, and you don't have a plan. So I stayed at college. And I did this independent study was Steven Soderbergh. And he said do everything yourself and just learning yourself. Don't depend on anybody else. Who is Steven Soderbergh? Will he's not the Oscar award winning Soderbergh. So not sit Aberg, right? Well, you can prosper flies. Okada Virk Soderbergh tomato tomato. He that was your mentor yet come on in college. Come true. They see what was he doing there? He would live there. He lived in Charlottesville. And when I decided that I was going to drop out of college. I said, you know, I'm going to drop out. I just think I don't think this is for me the guy that was running the he was the head of the Virginia independent film festival. He is name is Bob Gazali. He's now the CEO president of AFI he said to me. Well, if you wanna get into entertainment, there's this kid in town that just one like the condom festival with this movie called sex lies videotape probably haven't seen it. But he's he's just finishing up his second movie. And I think he actually might be a hotshot you want you track them down and ask him how to do this. So I tracked him down. And I literally got college credit for Stephen to tell me just learned to do everything yourself. I got college credit for that. And when I went to my parents, and they said, look, do whatever you want you want to be an entertainment, my mom challenged me. So you don't have a plan said I'm going to write a book. So I started with what I knew how to do like, I know how to write. I don't know how to write a screenplay but in a right? So I wrote a book then from that book, I took a screenwriting class that that was not part of the curriculum at UVA, I took a screen lane class in turn that book into a screen. Play. When I I then took I got an internship at a video house where I learned to shoot and edit and to light and direct in a made short films. And I'm like, hey, I'm leaving college. I had written a book I'd written a screenplay. I have a bunch of short films that I made on my own just all on my own all of which I got credit for because I made my own major. And they're like, yeah. We'll give you credit for that. So I graduate from that. I want to make this into a movie now we have to raise money. So we'd literally went friend friend family member to family member. And just see could we scrape together hundred thousand dollars to make a movie like is that possible, and we scraped this money together. And my parents are like go for and when I tell you I had zero dollars in my Bank account because every summer most people would go get a job. My parents supported me and said, do what you wanna do that's gonna make you happy, and we'll support you. We just need to know. This is what you wanna do. When you're doing your best how much space did it take up inside you when you think about back in that era back in that phase of your life. When you're thinking about making movies or making a book or screenplay or was it is it more accurate say I wanna build something that had legacy. Like, I don't know what the thing is yet for you. The thing is I was making something out of nothing. But no, that's that's your process. Right. That's what you do. Really? Well, let's skill. But I'm trying to get a sense of like, what was the thing. You are driving toward it was the make something that mattered. Is that close? That's that's one hundred percent true. Okay. How much space did that take up in you? When I say. I'm gonna say all of it. Yeah. I mean, it's it especially in that period. Right. So I didn't have a girlfriend. I didn't have any money. I didn't have any hobbies. I didn't like I was I'm an I'm all in or I'm not right in especially when you're eighteen to early twenties. Like, I was just when I'm when I'm Lizzy is description of Johnny one speed, Mike it was and I will tell you how much it occupied. When you say how much space? So let me give you an example. So prior to deciding, you know, college is not for me. I drop out. Oh, it you know, it, but I'm going in entertainment. And now, I'm going to do this. So I did drink alcohol in college and the alcohol the alcohol, and I know people are gassed in they probably don't believe it. But in college, I consumed alcohol, and what I will say about my consumption of alcohol is I was in. I. I will use this word. I mean humbly, but it's true. Awesome. At it. I was really really good at it. I rush rang lush female Russian polish in I drank so much alcohol. You know, I would drink by myself not to get drunk because I loved beer and I loved cold beer, and it was interesting because I've since really examined. Why did I drink so much and it wasn't because it got me drunk? It wasn't like, oh my mind is being altered 'cause I never smoked pot. I've never done any drugs of any kind. I drink beer. But I was I was obsessed with drinking beer, what ended up happening is. I developed a tool fibrillation, and so my I had this irregular heartbeat. And I go to the hospital, and I'm like, I think I'm having a heart attack, and they're in they're going down the checklist. Like well. Do you do any drugs? Like what's going on? This is so unusual for somebody. Who's so young? Do you do? Drugs. I'm like, no, they're like do drank like sometimes like how often do you drink like every day? And like, no, I never drank on Wednesday. Like, are you crazy? So the doctor the doctor is like and how much you drink, and I'm like case to bear a day. I don't know. Like isn't that like a normal portion come on? I'm dead serious. So the doctor looked at me, and he goes, you're drinking a case to be day. You're not even legal to drink. You're having heart issues. You said you have a choice to make today like you can continue to roll the dice or you could stop drinking and have an actual wife in at that point. I sat back, and when you say how much space did it occupy? So I was drinking a case of beer day in college, I stopped sing they have never had anything to drink and really identified as young as young adult. Wow. I have this obsessive gene that. Could be used for really bad things or really good things. And I took that. And I said, you know, this is a great lesson for me 'cause I'm capable of doing that. I'm capable of evil. I'm capable of destroying myself. It's in me. And I know it could happen all on my own, but I need to focus, and I'm so grateful the data that happened because all of my space became filled with doing good. How much do you think about this part of you? This is fascinating to me this. I think this is the this is a huge insight about how you've become en- done. What you've done is that one. There was lots of insight to this ridiculous motor. And you realize that young age you had to point the motor in a direction to experience what you really wanted to experience destruction or space in wonder, or, you know, somewhere in those two when I said space, I mean destruction or in constriction or space in in something giving right? Okay. How much do you? How much time? Have you spent thinking about this do reflect on this a lot is this what you talk about. When you do keynote addresses. You talk about this part here of your life. I actually don't I don't share this part all that much like a a public forum. Or are speaking engagement be in when I do share it. This is why I have a little little bit of a hard time sharing in group setting because I do think to myself why can't everybody just shut it off? And I know the reason the reason is the way that our brains are wired, and I've gone deep with. Top notch professionals in this seeking this answer the road that I was going down was only because of I enjoyed the experience the feeling of a cold beer, the sound of it cracking the taste of it is cold. Like, I wasn't a drinking Jack Daniels getting drunk at all costs. It was purely beer, and it was purely ice cold beer, and to this day, drinking ice cold beverage is what I do that's different than someone who's doing it because they want to alter their state of mind, and it's very hard to tell people. Well, if I can do it then you can do it because they're dealing with a completely different issue than what I was dealing with. It's what we're wired differently. So I was not doing it to how I'm drunk, and I'm having a great time. In fact, when I went to UVA. I pledged to fraternity and I'm like, okay. I'll be fraternity. It's all good. But I was completely against drugs of any kind alcohol was fine. Does just this is just in my young mind. Right. I'm like, there's look alcohol's fine. All the drugs are horrible. And I'd let everybody know that like it was very open about it. And I got to this fraternity. And I was at a party early on right on the pledge. I'm early on. And turns out. Oh my God. They were doing drugs. I mean, can you imagine that people doing drugs in college? But I'm so naive in. I don't know anything about anything. I literally the next day. Just call them said I'm out because I don't want to be around it. They said, well, if you're not if you d- pledge this you're out of the whole Greek system like I don't wanna be around. It's just not me. So I left not caring that. Okay. I can't go to those parties. They're doing something that I don't want to be part of and people's able you're such a hypocrite because you are. Drinking like is it hypocritical from an objective point of view you. Go was sure is drinking worse than smoking pot or whatever. But within my own value system. I was like I don't wanna be a part of that. And this drinking by yourself thing was I didn't party a lot in college. I mean, that's that's the truth. I just enjoyed the experience of drinking a beer. It's like it's like when you died deepen that and he get one. So then when I stopped. Okay, do you. Okay. Sorry to interrupt me. Do you have is your thinking patterns or they rigid or flexible because I'm getting rigidity here. But I don't know you as being rigid K. So here's what I realize especially early in my life. I mean, it it's re it was rigid early in my life. I mean when I say, none of my friends in high school smoked pot. Like, we just nobody smoked pot. We drank beer, and that was like, okay. That was fine. But not because I had a black in white look at things like that was it, and I always remove myself from situations that were black and white. I would look at people, and I think at a younger age pretty much I could judge somebody more than perceptive about something. And once the event happened with alcohol with. Me. I sat back, and I'm like, wow. I think I'm pretty good person. And I really messed up, and as I've gotten older from that time, I have become so much more empathetic towards human beings that I don't really see black and white I see gray. And I now see everybody's got that back story that I don't know about. And I don't know how they wound up in this position in an incredibly empathetic. And when I see somebody who's working a job that they don't wanna work rather than being like that's because they're too lazy to go out. It's more. You know, what I don't know. I don't know what brought them that situation. I see it as more gray. So I would like to think that this type personality this will Johnny one speed. A I I would hope that my eyes are now seeing the world as more gray as opposed to block and white. Okay, brilliant because. It's like that got you into a position to be more flexible. It sounds like early on the rigidity the one speed the go at all costs got you into position. And then did you have a fallout because of that, I know obviously, your heart was one of the early ones. But were there any other costs to that now? No. Yeah. So it wasn't. So there was just like, no, no, I'm joking. Now there really wasn't you know, in terms of the fallout of being Johnny one speed. There were I mean, many projects where like other project didn't work out in. This is the this is the difference in terms of without view the world in the way that many people might see it. I go all out. And like I say, I think it's good enough. It's good enough. And if it fails and falls on its face when it's released it doesn't go anywhere. I honestly look at it. And I go just wasn't meant to be good enough for you your standards or good enough for your peers. Now. Good enough for me world. It's got to be good enough for me. And then who else is in your mind when you think of good enough like who's the next person that you think of the next person would be Lizzy. Of course, my wife, and then would be my mom, but my mom's a hard. It's you know, everything I do is. She's a mall, right? So everything's like, hey, you know, that's great Lizzy is grit is is a great critic. But I honestly even even with that. I'm the guy that when I'm doing what I'm doing. And I'm going forward in p and even when people from the sideline or hey, maybe you shouldn't be doing that. I'm like, you don't see the end. I know I know where it's going like I'm good with this like, I'm I don't get discouraged easily. I am so one-speed still. And I keep that as a strength because I feel like that's how I get things done is that I'm all in. I'm either all in all out. Okay. It's obvious that that is one of your core strains, how'd you balance this big belief in yourself in the? The good that's going to take place in the future. How do you balance that with the other side, which I'm sure you've had this prick before about Huber ISM versus humility? Right. And so people that have strong confidence strong belief can edge into the hubris. You know, cocky, arrogant space at anwr up people the wrong way in get in the way of projects and all that stuff. So how do you how do you balance? That is you're right at the border of I in when I say right at the border, and I think you saying that like somebody like sitting across you could be like, how dare you even imply that I potentially could be right. I said this from Lizzy from day one. I'm a fifty fifty proposition lighting when I show up you're going to like me or hate me. But you won't be apathetic about me. I'm a coin toss because many people will say that is that's one of the most era than people I've ever met. And other people will say, wow, that's one of the most passionate people I've ever met when I'm engaged in what I'm doing when I'm doing that belief. I try very very hard. And when I like, it'll be fun. Anybody who knows me is there laugh and say that's not true. But when I say arrogance does not enter my mind because arrogance to me is believing you're better than everybody else. And I honestly believe everybody else could be doing this too. And I don't think I don't think I'm the smartest guy in the room. I don't think I'm the most talented guy in the room. I think I'm willing to run through the wall. And I'm I'll get to the other side 'cause I'm kinda dubber n- enough to do it. But I've got some degree of intelligent some degree of talent. Some degree. But I know, and I know for a fact, I'm not even close to the smartest or the best or most or anything. I'm like are people so much better than me? But I'll finish, you know, give you really good example, my best friend random random is a great example of how of of me, my best friend ran a marathon in he called me when I was twenty seven he called me. And he said, I just finished a Marine Corps marathon. And what do you say to your best run winning? Does it? Right. You twenty seven like twenty five thousand other people who did it like great job. I said, you know, what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna do an ironman hang up the phone. I'm like what's in iron, man? What am I doing? I don't even know what it is. It's not a tougher though. It's better than I'm like, I'm gonna one up you. So I look it up. It's a two point four mile open water swim. Mike. Just a little problem. I don't know how to swim. All right next thing. So one hundred and twelve mile bike, Mike. Wow. That's I mean, I can ride a bike. But I don't own a bike. So that might be that's the problem and then to twenty six point two mile run. Now, like, a haven't run anything beyond five K like God, man. Have I been off more than I could chew. Why decided so I was actually in the best shape of my life. When this was happening because backstory really quick at Wade one ninety eight and I was five eight and a half. And I was terribly out of I was like the meat head in the gym. I could lift a ton of weight, I was really strong for my size. But I couldn't walk up a flight of stairs or run a mile. So I lost fifty pounds broke the five it I decided to break the five minute mile because I'd never done it in high school, and I was pissed at myself. So I was starting this ironman thing. I was like in the best shape in my life. So I then go over to New Zealand by myself to do an ironman, and my best friend called me. And he just goes, dude. I. Listen, you're taking this thing. Little far like you've never gone swimming in open water, and I'm like what? So what? And he's like you don't understand there's no lane line or wall or you'd like it's dangerous. So they had a fun swim. That was the Wednesday before the race, and I'm swimming. And I'm not kidding. You five minutes into the swim. I say to myself, I'm gonna trout, and this is the worst of bitchy wary of all time man goes over to New Zealand to one up his best friend and dies in the fun swim. Like, this is the worst. This is awful. Oh, so I get out of the water. I swim two miles an hour in this open water. I then go take a swim lesson from some Olympic guy that was there doing a swim clinic. I beg him. I'm like, I don't know how to swim. You gotta teach me quick 'cause the racist in today's turns out the day of the race. I get out of the water. There are thousand people in the race. I'm one hundred I'm top ten percent in the swim in two point four miles. And I got out in fifty nine minutes. I swam almost a half mile further in the same amount of time is when I thought it was going to drown and I get out of the water now, Mike while this is pretty amazing. Get on my bike everybody passing me on the bike. But if thrive on the run cross the finish line. And I'm like, I did it. But during that process, I'm like, so was I era Ghent to believe that I could do it or was I just right? I'm like, you know, what it's one foot in front of the other. It's one pedal stroke at a time. It's. Once one-stroke at a time. I'll get there. I I've never done. I've never even come close is arrogant to think that or was I just right. I wasn't. I'm not era Ghent because I was I finished, you know, bottom fifty percent. There are people who are so much better than I am so much more talented so much, but I did what I set out to do. That's how my mind works is. I'm mike. I'm not even close to the challenge. Most talented, the smartest guy, but I'll get there of all the people that you studied on sports science the show who are you most like of the talent who of the talent. And I mean, I don't not nothing. I'm nobody. Personality was not not not I didn't mean that in like sport 'cause personalities personality wise of all the athletes, I would not even mention my name in the same bread of any of those athletes because they are so much better at what they're doing than what I'm doing. It was a little bit of a trap. But question wasn't like. And you said, no, no, no, no. I can't put my name next. Michael, jordan. I mean, I can't put my name next. Tiger woods. That's that's a really thoughtful response. You give I can't. I can't because with some might you didn't when like I know better. Yeah. That's really good. Really good. Like, I know better. I'm not that talented that smart that any one thing in particular other than being stubborn. Okay. So we know. Okay. So we got some core capabilities. Here stubborn driven. Big motor big engine, big belief system. But like accurate in where you place yourself amongst talent. But it, but you said earlier that at some point in our conversations, you had said that being the biggest is not is not a good thing. Being the fastest is the fastest the tip of aero Fasces is not a good thing. You need to be big and fast enough to be successful. Correct. And so you put that into a life lens. It's like you don't wanna have one hundred seventy I q you don't wanna be that guy. Right. Right. Because there's some costs in other parts of your life. You wanna have a hundred and something I q that's fast enough. And then you wanna have a social IQ and emotional IQ that is solid enough to relate. Okay. All right. So that's what you're saying that you found from the best and you're saying, I kind of fit that model. Luckily to I fit it on a per task basis for okay? So we know what you're driven toward. Okay. Doing things that matter legacy stuff. What are you driven from? I'm driven from. True. I mean, like what fuels me what's inside of me. And I when I tell you today that answers different than it would have been twenty years ago. Lizzy in kids really genuinely would drive me and my life is divided into two chapters. It's really before Lizzy after Lizzie once I met Lizzie everything changed, and that example of being I would call myself. I'm not the smartest, but I'm smart enough. And I'm not the most talented, but I'm talented enough. Like, I'm I fit that mold Lizzy brought a sense of appreciation. For myself. She knows me better than I know myself. So when when we have our pillow talk, she's the ultimate counselor on let's put everything in perspective because she's the opposite of Johnny one-speed. She's the ultimate in balance. She went to Princeton. She went to Harvard. She speaks three different lying that sounds like balance cheat. She she's the that she was the first person from high school to go to Princeton. But she's so balanced on she so not obsessive. She's this perfectly. I mean in my eyes on like, she's just perfection in carpet. And I look at her, and I try to model myself and say God, how can I be like her and for her? It's about moderation. She's the kind of person who can take, you know, the best taking tasting ice cream in the world in take a little spoonful say, wow, that's really good. I've had enough. I'm like, I'm the guy with his. Head in the bucket while case a beer, literally case a bear. Right. So Lizzie is it Lizzie has imparted upon me. The ability to evaluate myself, even better in guess when I met Lizzie. And you've heard the professional story matter when we were making x-emmitt. Met her at that exact moment where that word delusional was filling was fueling me and Lizzie then comes with my life. And I'm like now we've had the love at first sight story met on a plane next to each other to blocks away from other same street like this perfect match and heaven, and when I say Lizzy in the kids fuel me, that's my genuine purpose. But when I say, I answer to them. I have to be able to whatever it is that I'm doing I need to make sure that my wife in my kids won't be upset at me for what I'm doing at that moment every moment of the day. And when I go home, and I'm praying when I say on deeply spiritual in I answer. I really honestly believe in God. However, you want however, you look at the universe that did I add to the energy in a positive. Away or take away from it. And I answer that question every night. And obviously there are many nights. Where I go messed up. I was not a net positive person today. Okay. Brilliant through chapters. Is there a third is? They're going to be a third. Right. So that's the question, right? Here's my answer. I'm gonna say, we're we're always evolving, but my life is to chapters because the evolution happened until I was thirty one with just me, and my parents and family, and that support system from Lizzy on it's like Lizzie, and I are forever, and we're going to evolve together forever. And in terms of there being a nother chapter. It's just going to continue to evolve. And I think I probably become overtime a more moderate person. Probably you know, I think we're somewhere in the hundreds of interviews conversations with people that are switched on. And nobody's taken up as much space as you are right now about the relationship their love life. So that's that's noticeable to me how important this is for you. She is she's everything. I mean, Li Lizzy is everything. And when people say, you know, when like you complete me, I almost feel like I actually didn't really exist. I wasn't knee until Lizzy came aboard. I was I had my training wheels on but I couldn't ride the bike. She like wasn't. I wasn't really doing it. I was I was Johnny one speed. And I was bowling forward in doing what I do when Lizzie Kane XM came fight science came sports science, everything took off everything got better and better because I think my clarity in my vision got even better with her. How old are your kids nine in an eleven nine eleven. So are they into sport? Yeah. Yeah. A little girls a gymnastics baller. She's amazing two time state champion. She's awesome. Wow. Rice does a lot of the cross or son does across total ball, really really excelled. In it. What insights based on your? Observation in study from the sport science lenses, are you hurry shaping your kids in parenting Greek lesson, and I don't know if people are gonna agree or disagree with this. I am making sure the my daughter knows she's a human being she's not a little girl, and I feel like society takes little girls in handicaps them right away. They lower the expectations the games are shorter. They don't have to do it. You know, for the presidential physical fitness says, you don't have to do the same as the boys. Oh, you're never gonna be as fast as the boys. You're not going to be a strong. You're not gonna they tell you that right away. And I'm telling my little girl. I'm like right now, she's the fastest human in her class, male or female, and like dude ride that as long as you can't there might be a day when you're not. But don't let anybody tell you. It's because you're a girl like that. You're a human and go for it physically. She's a very very good gymnast. For her age. And I'm I'm really realistic. It standing back saying what are the odds that my little girl has what it takes. Because her mom's five-foot, I'm five eight. She is she is little one speed when it comes to gymnastics in a task. She's like got that focus. So she's in that space. Now, it would somebody like that. Are they ultimately again, become the greatest in the world ever means to be seen? But I'll keep the options open for my son. When you look at how are you raising him the world, I'm like, I'm raising him. Especially on letting him know, you're you're a man like, I totally get it that you're a boy. And I totally get it. The boys do boys things, but you're you're more mature than you possibly think. In my son now is eleven going on twenty one. I'm like, you know, more than you think, you know. And you know, what's right and wrong. And obviously both my kids, you know, what's right and wrong. And you do your best every day, and I'm trying to echo what my parents, which is drill into my head on. You know what I get that? You're a kid in be a kid, but you do know what's right and wrong. And that idea of accountability is one that I think is key. And they're both the row thriving in flourishing. It's it's it's been awesome. As a parent, but you know, the nature versus nurture argument. Like are. We just blessed with two awesome kids, or is it the manner in which Lizzie in ira- parenting, or like what is it? And when I say two awesome kids. Everybody thinks kids are awesome, right? At least they should. And I think everybody should think that that their their kids are awesome. And they're when I say Lizzy Lizzy is number one. My kids are right. There of if I want to hang out with anybody in the world. It's Lizzie only kids. Okay. Let's stay on the sport thing for just a minute. Are you help are you encouraging them to do sports training or sports specific movements, like just get dramatic stand genetics. Or are you having do some sort of other types of base movements? They have to be multi sport to even though my daughter is excelling in gymnastics. She still on the ski team. She had a I, you know, it was like you gotta play lacrosse you. Gotta play soccer. You gotta do other stuff. Because if you focus too early, it's a bad thing. A you're gonna burn out be it's bad for your body to begin with you need. The you need the movements that your body doesn't ordinarily do to strengthen your body. So it can do what it's really good at that cross training idea. So the kids ski in the winter in, you know, Bryce plays lacrosse basketball football ski like yeah. You gotta do other stuff. You're not allowed to just park when your kid you need all that other movement. And I think that that honestly carries through even at the elite level that you can't do one motion over and over and over because there are only so many times that you can do it you need to have that cross training. Those other sports to strengthen other parts of your body. Flipping on that as a segue onto your book perfection point. What are the one or two insight? You big insights that you've learned from there that influence how you parents. But also, you know, when you think about athletics in general in human performance in general, and I think I have this right? One of might be in. So this is maybe you can add two more to it is that we're actually pretty close to the upper limits. Depends on what we're talking about. Okay. I didn't get that quite right. Yes. I it depends on what we're talking about. I was thinking speed in terms of speed straight line speed. It depends on what percentage you're actually dealing with. Right. 'cause we're now I still think we're close to half a second away from the top speed that we can achieve that were you know, four tenths to five tenths. So is that closer not relative to nine seconds. It's it's still a decent way away. I think we're we're really close is in distance running thinking the marathon were really close to top it out. Why is that? We've been running far distances as a species for a really long time. Right. The arbitrary distant of the hundred meter dash we've been kind of doing that. But it's. I think we're further away from the the hundred meter dash than we are the marathon the marathon, we're almost topped out when you start talking about. Well, what about you know, what about how high we can jump? I think we're probably pretty close to how high we can jump because we've been jumping for a really long time when you say, well, what about lifting? Yeah, we're close to the limit because our frames can only handle so much and we've been able to get there. But then when you say, well, how far you can hit a golf ball. How long have we been playing golf you say the long jump? How long have we been long jumping like we when you look at the sample size. It all goes by sample size to me. How hard we can throw a ball. Yeah. We're almost at the top because the sample size is so big there are million pitches. Thrown in North America alone every year. That's just in North America. A million by professional Pitt by the best of the best. So we know that we top out at that. But when you look at will are were are we at the top you look at the X games. And that's where I say depends on what we're talking about do it. Yeah. We're we're just scratching the surface there. Yeah. In most of the X games adventure bay sports females. On such a radical clip of growth exponentially faster than than men. I I don't know if they'll ever happen. But it could be that women get are closer to surfing that you can amount men's and women's you know, start right now, it's not there. There's still a delta. But the rate of improvement is radical in the female side of it. Okay. So sorry, go back to like one or two takeaways from perfection point. I think one or two takeaways is the idea of perfection is is a really good one. But just know you'll never reach it. So that's that's takeaway number one. It's impossible to reach it. There's no way to be perfect. There's no way that even the numbers. I laid on the book they can't be achieved everything would have to be perfect. And there's no such thing. So that's number one. Takeaway number two, don't let that discourage you from trying. I mean, that's that's that's the way. I look at it is like you're never going to reach it. But that shouldn't discourage you from trying because. Maybe I'm away wrong. And maybe like someone saying you're delusional. Maybe I maybe I'm completely wrong. And someone can prove me wrong on what I think the limit actually is in go for it. Don't let it discourage. You let it encourage you to do my best. And maybe that limit is maybe I lay out in the in the book, we set really crappy limits, and this is a book about setting a limit. So maybe the limit. I said is completely wrong off base. It's my opinion based on a lot of science and a lot of fact in Lada factors calculate. Maybe. I'm wrong. I love it. Listen to the people that have been on sports signs. I mean, it's it's really knows you go Ben Rothlisberger, Jerry Rice, Larry FitzGerald, Dom consumer drew Brees like goes on and on and on and on like, it's like you can go on. That's I mean, those are just some NFL names. But you get Kevin Durant in the lab, you'll get Klay Thompson lab and get you know, is as Thomas in the lab like we get we we've had so many athletes have had the great I've had the great privilege of having a front row seat to true greatness. So this is now a non objective question. I'm going to ask. But more subjective. Have to the first is have you noticed any trends in athletes? Yes. I think it's a surprise people. When people are like NFL players are just gonna keep getting bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger actually don't think that's the case. I think we are seeing that the size that we currently have is working against us. And when people go why are there there's so many injuries? And like look at how big everybody is it's working to the disadvantage of the team. So I actually think I like when people go so you think linemen are going to be lighter. I mean, I think they're going to be lighter and more nimble in more athletic than just big in. That's what I'm seeing. Like you look at you. Don't look at the position of tight end. And how it's completely changed to those guys are just NBA players. I mean that was never the case in the eighties. Right. So you're you're seeing a change there in basketball, the center has vanished. Right. I mean, nobody runs a center based offense anymore because they figured out. You know what? I love the moneyball of it all is loud. The percentage of making a three point shot is actually not that different than a, you know, a, you know, a fourth fourteen foot jump shot in the rebounding percentage on the three point shot is actually in the offenses favor because it's gonna ricochet off further than if I shoot from closer in. So when you do the math of it, all if you have somebody who can shoot a three shoot the three. It's like, it's like are trends in every sport. And the biggest trend I think that that I see is. I hope and I know this won't happen in my lifetime. But I really I really do hope that eventually we get to a point where men and women are just playing together. Because I I see very few positions in sport. Everybody immediately jumps to the NFL. They go new woman's gonna play linemen in the NFL. Like, no, no normal sized human being plays lime in the NFL. But I I wanna see men and women competing together at every level from youth onto professional won't happen in my lifetime. It may never happen. But I think we shouldn't separate it out. Because there are a lot of women that are out there that if you lined all seven billion people up from day one, you know, as babies and said, we're going to give you equal access to everything. How many women would play in the NBA the answer's not zero. Okay, cool. Okay. Second second subject who question on a scale of one to ten everyone that you've interviewed been part of your lab experience and it's front row seat to the grates on a scale of one to ten of. Self-belief if you took all of them together. Where would you throw that dart in what target area? Would you imagine on the scale of one to ten they're they're all all of the greats all of the grades riding eleven now. It's crazy. It's crazy. But they they like you think you look at Michael Jordan. And you think he's the greatest basketball player of all time. Yeah. But does he have the highest shooting percentage? Not even close you're like because he believed in himself so much dimissed shot didn't even register. It's like whatever the ball, Dan going. Give me the ball game. The next one. Will it doesn't matter. If I miss miss one hundred in a row, the next one's going in. They just don't lose that belief in themselves. It's one thing. Like, I heard that story growing up, but I couldn't swallow it. I couldn't make it mine, and it's a whole different thing to actually believe that it's phenomenal. And they haven't the then the second this is related the this is question to be if you will. How many of them demonstrated nervousness prior to the test that you are giving them interesting because that's one of the things that were really looking for of the elite of the elite. Now, it's interesting. So we do a combine where we'll have most of the top guys going into the draft come in. We censor them all up, and we watch heart rate and respiratory rate and all kinds of factors on when they're doing the test. The true great actually just remain calm and exactly the same people who haven't made it yet. They can get nervous. And it's interesting. I I compare it. We wired up Travis Pastrana before he was a setting the world record for longest jump in like a car in Long Beach. This is many years ago. I remember that new was no limits. Yeah. There's no Olympic notes. So we wired him up his heart rate. Never changed from the time. He left his tent to any got in the car to any landed in south lake never change. Like, that's that's what greatness is we've had done. A lot of work with navy seals elite special forces people who are in Lee's special forces. We literally we put a Cyper in a box where we covered him with ice. I remember the study bugs we had translates crawling on his face heart rate. Never changed just like just nothing fazes him. And that's the difference where I would say I like where I sit where I can be really honest with myself and say am I in that group? The answer is no I am not in that group. I like when everything is going crazy. I haven't reached the point in my life yet where I can honestly say I stay super calm in like I can see the whole playing field. I don't have that keen sense where elite athletes do I can be honest with myself and say like I said, I'm not the best in anything. That's one of the reasons why because. Look, I'm stubborn, but I also I wouldn't stay stay calm. Like a navy seal would in Crete. I would I I wouldn't be that got I was involved in a project at red bull number years ago where we wired up a a leak golfer when we did a heart rate, monitor and EEG Shirley looking at real time brainwaves as well as right elite offer local pro and then kind of a weekend hack shirt, and then we put him under different levels of pressure. And what we found is that the weekend hack. He was fine because his identity was never involved. So he would just go at it. Like, no problems the elite pro like he was his typically our guy. He would do something phenomenal is that he would activate all of his alpha alpha and beta would alpha would activate to the fresh hold of what you would consider to be acceptable. And it will be right at that level. And then after he would execute the skill it would flush up. It's like he let go and it would flush up and expand and then it would quickly release. So we had this ability to hold it older all get through the movement. And then it would like and then he released and then the weekend. I'm sorry. Then the local pro the guy that everybody knows his name in the local area. And he was the his identity was over involved in what he would do what he did was a disaster. Right. So he couldn't maintain that limit that glass ceiling if you will of internal arousal in. And it was spiking off the charts. And at the end of the experiment. He says God. Get I feel like I wanna kill myself. He was like, oh, we gotta go back and make sure we got all the internal reviews like yet. But so I think phenomenal finding that the whether it's chicken and egg in, you know, whether it's genetic or or mental skills, I wanna think it's a combination of both and the number of frames that the elite have seen the number of experiences. They've had to rely on, you know, getting through whatever experience at their now. Again, we learned that can we learn to stay calm under pressure thousand percent. That's how I put food on my table. You know, it is skill. It is an absolute skill. You. Absolutely. Can learn very difficult to replicate in a laboratory setting. It is like it takes time. That's why we've witnessed LeBron James becoming great, right? We watched him and people are like I choked in the finals I played like I'm like, dude. He's like nineteen or twenty like, we all we also saw Kobe Bryant same thing. Yep. You don't miss his first big shots or whatever quote unquote, big shots. And he if you. In the playoffs right early in his career. But if you deconstruct he didn't see it as big it was just another opportunity. Right. And so he just had a long term view of his future rush anyways. Yes. You can learn com. Yes. You can learn confidence their mechanical it takes time. But it takes a lotta time. Okay. Super time. Thank you. This is unbelievable. So what how do you? Let's get right to the end of two really big bangers. Do you have a philosophy? God july. I do I do. Here's what I say to myself good as word you use. When something is not great don't be scared to be great. And I it I say that. And I'll say to my wife, I'll say to my kids don't be scared to be great like people. And when when you say that and you hear that in your head. That's where I think. Like, the desire to be great to do something. That's great. I can't decide whether or not it genuinely is great because time will only tell but I can kneel down at night and say man, I really tried to be great. I really tried in guides me. And I'd say, you know, what I'm going to good as a word to use. When something is not great don't be scared to be great. And then how do you operationalize or define great? I think you define gray as. It has differentiated itself in a positive way amongst the competitive field with ever that. Is it somehow is different in? This is this is how I'll define greatness, I say Nirvana's, smells, like teen spirit is at a great song. Now, if you sit back and you say, musically like note for note is at a great song you like, well, there's not the like is Bach or Beethoven is at a better composition, smells, like teen spirit changed the musical world. That's a great song. It it made a John More than a dent in the musical universe. Now. When they were writing that song did they intend on that to happen? They thought it was they thought it was certainly good enough to be good to put out in the university. They thought it was great like sure why they wouldn't have done. Otherwise turns out. It was when you're doing something. And you're saying is it greater not you can't tell right. This second. But it's fine to tell yourself. You know, what I believe that? It's good enough to be good to be considered. Good out in the world. I can just I just know it objectively I can say that the might song is good enough to be considered good. Is it great? I can think it's great. But I won't know. Cool. Very cool. It's clean. It's really clean for you. And then the the last kind of big banger is how do you think about the fine articulate the concept of mastery? I think mastery is finding a system that works for you. Where whatever it is that you're doing you win on a repeated basis. A B you're not satisfied with winning. That's hanging. No, you're trying to achieve mastery in that way. I would define no one ever becomes a genuine master like on the master of everything on the master, whatever. But what I mean by you find a system that works for you in wins every time that goes down to when you are interacting with somebody at the store. Did you make them happy mean were they glad that they met you as a random person? Or did you make the met like the way that you did that if you're standing at a free throw line? Did you make were you ten for ten like, did you actually master that? And there are very few things in life where you can say will have mastered at all you can master in increments, and you can master in small increments. Can I play my scales on my Qatar? Can I play them wickedly? Fast. Can I play them back when? Yeah, it works every single time. I I've got that. Now, let's do my courts. Can I play every version of that chord yet? I can do that. Now, let's go do, you know, jazz courts. Do you know rock quit like you keep going on and you master by winning in increments? So you win every time you've developed a system. But you're you have the foresight to know, I'm not happy with just winning that thing because there's something else have to go in. That's my definition. Very cool very cool thoughtful different than I've heard from anyone else so far. I don't know if it's a good. If that's a good cool. You look you're like cool. It's new and so, and but you also were able to break it down. Right. So the two elements are understand your system that allows you to win and also recognized that winning is not the end game. It's not yet. Right. This moves on so. Yeah. At one that. But there's a lot more. There's more to it. So I can't say I'm a master yet. Not is finding master. There isn't is there such a thing as being a master. And I'd say depends on your parameters haven't met anyone that says, I'm a master. Well, god. I mean who could who could be. I mean, if you say to Michael Jordan were you a master basketball player. He's gonna say I was I was really the best on the fast. But I could you know, I could always be better. It's crazy. I mean, that's yeah. That's cool. That's how you have to think. Okay. Your book working we find it. The perfection point any bookstore or any website. What what's next for you? What's next? For me is going to be an exciting frontier. I'm entering a stage where been around doing. Doing entertainment ventures and created a really solid foundation to take that to the next level. I mean, I've been very fortunate in that I have been successful in various ventures. And when I say good fortune. There is no guarantee, and I tried really really hard. What you're gonna see from me next is to take my current skillset and go up notch. Just take it to the next level. That's what you're gonna see. And in what form that happens? I think you're gonna see music. I think you're gonna see television. I think that you're gonna see new media. I think that the the entertainment landscape is changing so fast. It's hard for us to keep up with it. But like everything I've got this vision in idea of where I think we need to go and where things are going to be five years from now. And you'd better be starting now. Now because if you start five years from now, you're going to be way behind the game, very cool and break of midnight break of midnight, the podcast we do bring you can go to bring midnight dot com. It's on every platform, obviously, it's anywhere that podcast can be found and brink of midnight the band, so Lizzie in I write music, you can check out all of our music on everywhere. That music is is available. We wrote a Christmas song ended up charting. It was just an awesome experience really fueled our desire to wanna make more music in. We're continuing to make more music, and it's a it's a genuine passion of ours. It's a I just think music is that thing of if I were to pick one thing one thing that I was really really excellent at it would be a musician. It'd be jazz for me. Yeah. Like, can you imagine? I like, I'm a we've re we write songs, and I can I can I'm I'm a decent guitar player. Decent musician. Can you imagine? Jn just can you imagine being an amazing Graham easing musicians? Beautiful beautiful art. It is powerful to it's a language of the world. And then okay. So those are two in any other places. Social media was social media. Check us out on brink of midnight. You know on on all social platforms. You can find me on Twitter at John Broncos J N B R E N K U S underscore. Yeah. And just just keep a lookout because they're big things ahead. Love that. Got me curious. Okay. Good. I know you're being vague for reason. And that's fine. Okay. And then folks if you if you enjoy this type of conversation, which is an exploratory insight driven, a curious conversation, definitely checkout. Bring midnight in the conversations are about important moments in people's lives and check that out because there's something there. And I highly encourage you to go, you know, tune in listen and subscribe as well, so John thank you for your time. Thank you for introducing. Two shows that I was familiar with from longtime ago that have been fun to see how you've been able to shape the landscape of sport and science put together. So thank thank you for the time today. Thank you so much. You're amazing. Honestly, thank you.

So, Now What? | Coronavirus Crisis - 549

"Hey there thanks so much for listening to this edition of the selene show. If you are a regular subscriber and this episode showing up a few hours later than normal. I do apologize. Things have been a little crazy around here without a doubt. We have been going through some strange and very uncertain times. I have been racking my brain and how best to serve. You thought today I would start by just chatting with you like a friend in letting you know like okay. So what's around here? What am I feeling? What are we doing? What's going on what's the sentiment. So now what would I think you need to do to help? Calm yourself to stay grounded. I'm GONNA go over. Things I think are not helpful. Things that are helpful. I'm also going to share with you what we're going to do moving forward because I've been saying to people you need to plan and what I've been hearing in return is what am I planning for. Great question so we're GONNA get into all of that today but I I have for you. Is You want to keep things as normal as possible wherever you can in the spirit of keeping things normal. Let's play the show intro. Welcome to the show. Selena's a New York Times bestselling author celebrity fitness trainer. Obsessed with helping you live your life. Hey Charlene it's Petra Kolber you know I love you and I just had to cut a message in. It's not a question is the message in his thank you. I just shared your latest podcast out to Mike People. And here's what I wanted to say. Thank you for. Thank you for recognizing the reality. The people are recalibrating right now. And then once they've recalibrated than they'll be able to move full like thank you for addressing what people are really going through. I follow many thought leaders. I gotTa Tell You you're pretty much. Just one of the few that have not turned me off during this time. Thank you for sharing such amazing advice for free. Thank you for taking the time to also share with us that you needed to recalibrate. Thank you for being you and thank you for giving us the tools that we need to execute today. That's it a run out. It's so cool. It's so crazy. It's so full circle to have Petra call and leave a voicemail message for me because Petra Kober if you don't recognize that name that was someone who I've always seen in. Look to as one of my mentors. In the fitness industry. Remember many many years ago going to fitness conferences and thinking. She's so freaking cool. And so like grounding in normal and humble and I want to be like her so to get a compliment from someone like Petra and just knowing that Petra listens to the show is a huge compliment and he also Petra what you said thank you because I feel that way too. There's so many people whose I'm listening to their podcast right now. I'm trying to because my mind. Tell me if you guys are doing this to my mind I just. I need a break from this. I can't take in all this information but the second I start to distract myself with another podcast look. I listened to a couple of different COMEDIANS and like entertainment those kinds of things. I started listening to wait. How out of touch 'EM I? How out of touch are they and I? It just isn't interesting to me because it's not what we're going through. I don't want doom and gloom all day but I am recalibrating and I think we all are and it's hard to like I don't care about some of the things that cared about just a few weeks ago. They just seem completely irrelevant completely. Irrelevant are you with me. So let me just share with you a few things that are going on here at the Johnson House so but before I do. Let me say this podcast. They take a lot of time. They take a lot of effort. They take a lot of money to make this happen. We've got five shows their free. I'd use very few sponsors are usually will limit to one sponsor per show. I'm sure you listen to other podcasts. Where they've got like five and six podcast sponsors. We don't do that so it is very expensive to do five podcasts. Per Week it takes a lot of time I love it. I freaking love it but I'm only able to do that. When our businesses doing exceptionally well and these are turbulent times. So the first thing we had to do when it comes to planning is figure out. Where can we tighten the reins and one of the ways that we will likely need? To tighten the reigns is by producing perhaps fewer podcast. Now my goal is to return to a regular schedule as quickly as possible. But it wouldn't be fair for me to say or to make your promise that I can still do five a week. My goal right now is due to selene show episodes per week and to do one. Build your tribe. My goal is also to convert build your tribe episodes into exclusively helping people with their financial situation. We have changed a lot of things. That's probably the biggest as you. You can expect maybe maybe three and as soon as we can go back to five we will but in the meantime make sure that you're subscribed because if we lose subscribers you lose shows and I'm not like saying that as a threat it's just a fact like that's what everyone needs to do right now. Just say where are we? Let's take inventory. Let's stay calm but let's take inventory because we will survive this. Of course we will but those who are like just to like. Hey everybody just take a deep breath and get around people with a higher vibration and think positive exercise like okay great but also there's rents and there's mortgage and there's employees and there's and there's taxes and there's all of these things in house my family going eat. There's so many things at a higher vibration needs to happen while all of those things are also figured out and the only way you can figure them out is by sitting down with a pen and a piece of paper and taking inventory. And that's what we've done so let me start by just sharing. What's going on over here in our household. Because maybe you'll be able to relate to some of this. I am totally recalibrating. Pentag- lot of deep breaths and think about ways that I've become. Oh what's the word? Guess Selfish or self center just kind of like really sure what? I'm comfortable calling it. I I don't like calling myself selfish because I don't think that I am but I've done a lot to design my life to be very particular way. I like my closet a particular way. I like that the kids they come visit but I. My House is nice and organized hired an organizer to come in and organize my house three times a week. No I don't mean organize it. Keep it organized. I have a housekeeper. Everything has its place. I don't like clutter. I don't like things that aren't where they're supposed to be. And you see when my kids were little and everybody was home. That was like that was hard to do. It was really really hard to do but we still managed to do a really good job at it but once the kids were gone it was like. Oh now it's just me. Well now it's not just me Branca's back home. And he has a girlfriend of size girlfriend sears. Back home and she has a full-size Boyfriend. And all these full-size individuals are very much a larger size than I am and they take up a lot of space and eat a lot of food and they moved things and I just need to. It took me a few days to just go. Who Cares. So what perspective perspective is everything and it did just. It took me a few days to like I said recalibrate and check my perspective and just go. Wow I'm super blessed. I love my kids and I love their significant others. They really have made this. They are the silver lining in all of this foreshore. Like I've just so enjoyed working out with my kids again and I feel like they feel that uncertainty so I see them kind of looking at US looking towards us in a different way and I. I love that I love how connected we are and I love there were you know. Let's see there was four or five six of US last night watching Oh you're still under ten people gathering there's six of US watching documentaries and talking about history and talking about the economy and talking about emotional health like that is the silver lining so. Don't get me wrong. I just had to get my perspective straight ahead to go like who cares about the fact that there's more clutter in. I'm an introvert. And there's no place to get away right now. Who Cares because I'm loving this and that is a blessing for sure and there's GonNa be other blessings. GonNa talk about those in just a moment but I wanna talk to you because for some of you. It's not that much of a blessing like you may be in very tight quarters with people either roommates or close family members who are not emotionally stable right now who might actually be making things worse. Who are in some cases perhaps even abusive or addicted. And it's just not a healthy environment made worse by the financial stress of financial strain people on top of each other and then cabin fever. You're stuck in your house. You can't go anywhere. I don't know what the situation is in your state. I'm in California where we are on pretty much locked down and we should be. Let's get this over with and not even GonNa talk about politics my opinion yet but I will say it's the stress is very real. We are now hearing from friends and family members who have been laid off people who their job is gone. Most small businesses are not equipped to be able to to last to sustain weeks or even a month without any income no income and still paying taxes still paying employees still paying rent still paying healthcare insurance still paying for all of these things with no money coming in. And it's it's very real when things change it's often uncomfortable and those uncomfortable changes make us stronger and less you slip accidentally into victim mode and I'm GonNa give you permission to be victim. I'm going to listen when clouds get heavy. It rains. It's okay if you've cried a few times I'm gonNA give you exactly fifteen minutes today to say this sucks and I hate it and I'm stressed and I and I don't know how things are going to turn out and I just want to sit here and be in a bad mood and be stressed out for exactly fifteen minutes but then you've got to do something in order to change your state like you can't stay in that mode. You've got to change it in the best way to do that. I'm GONNA give you a couple of tips. The first change your physical state which usually means you got to exercise. I mean if you're not an exerciser fine get your but outside. Don't go near a crowd of people outside just even to sit outside on the grass will help to ground. You triple dog dare you to prove me wrong if you go outside incident nature for fifteen minutes and you don't feel better. I will personally come to your house and declutter your closet that competent. You're gonNA feel a million times better. Change your physical state by changing your energy in the best way change. Your energy is to just move frigging move your body get out of the House. Get Out of the room that in take a shower change. Your clothes presented nice outfit put on makeup. Pretend you're going somewhere. Pretend you have a very important meeting with the head of a company who you used to date when you're in high school okay. So you know what I'm saying like look your best sleek and start to feel your best. It'll change your attitude when you change your appearance. Believe it or not a does change the way you feel. I have been a more zoom conferences in the last four weeks than I care to count and I'm seeing people in their home environment which is totally cool. And I'm okay with kids screaming climbing all over you and the house looking like a wreck. But you don't need to look like Iraq. Uram saying like if just I know I'm not talking about glomming it up. You don't need to put on a three piece suit but how you present yourself even to yourself tells yourself how you feel and your brain starts to follow so dressed the part all right you know if you are in doom and gloom in your dressing like it's the end of the world and you're never gonNA see another person again if you're dressing already dressing like you're homeless will guess what's going to happen. No pull yourself together. I don't care if no is going to see you. Dress the part. Start pulling your shoulders. Back Stop moping around. I'm going to give you fifteen minutes to get that out of your system and then and then you have to start taking action. Then you have to step up and realize this is all meant to make you stronger. It is in your best interest. God is looking out for you and you will survive this. You won't just survive it. You'll thrive you will conquer this because that's what you've always done. It took me a few days to take inventory and say all right if things continue this way if sales are slow if I need to think about how I might have loan money to friends in the near future or how we might have to tighten the reins on well. We certainly have already tightened the reins on her spending. Like the just essentials kind of right now and things that we know we need for the future when this is over which it will be at some point. What what will we need? How do we need to position ourselves? So were the first thing we did was just sit down in terms of our business and just wrote down like everything every project. We currently had on the table and ask ourselves. Does this make sense right now? Is this how we're gonNA serve our audience? And what do they want? Okay so let me tell you one of the things we. I just got off a call. It's why this podcast late is we had planned on taking our push goal coaching which Britain had been doing and launching another month of it. But you know we're talking to the team and I'm like are people really worried about like their goal right now. I think they're really confused about what they should do with their goals. But I think people need an anchor right now. I think people need someone who can help them navigate in this moment. I think if Brennan are going to offer our services to the are lifers what people want right now. Is Our opinion our feedback guidance? Our advice our direction and specifically they need it around finances and I think that's really really important. I think that's what we need to offer people and so I'll hopefully be able to announce it later this week but we're going to start opening up you can call. It meant a mentorship or a guidance program with Brittany taking people especially right now in the middle of this corona virus crisis. We're GONNA have people getting alive zoom with us every week at least for the next month and then eventually will go to twice a month but will bring on experts in resources and we will just focus on what is most important right now to get your life right right now not a five year plan because you you really cannot create a five year plan right now you just can't you can try to sketch out but there's so many unknowns just have to be open to the fact that you've got to be flexible you've got to be. Nimble you've got to be smart you've got to be prudent. You've got to be faithful. You've got to be faithful in this moment anyways back to Britain launching that. Make sure you're following me on instagram. If you want to be part of it and I hope you will and that's something. We had talked about launching later this year and making it super affordable like one hundred dollars but I just said people people can't afford that right now and even if they can. They're worried that later they won't. Let's cut that price in half like let's make that like forty seven dollars and they get us live where they can interact and zoom and its community. Because everyone's going through this right now and some people are unaffected great. They don't need us right now but the people who do they really need us to help them navigate through this and then give people direction and a calm and community. And that's what we're GONNA do so right now. We're having to limit a resources limit the way that we're spending money Anything that's costing our company money. That isn't making the company money we've got to reallocate that we've got to figure out. How can we best serve those people who are a part of our academies the people who are it's like it's like we launched the program again it's insane and it's a blessing seriously? It's such a blessing to have so many people who they purchased one of those academies they made an investment in one many years ago and we told people lifetime access will always update it. And we're just seeing so many people now realizing like I might not have a job to go back to. I need to figure out what who am. I what am I where else could I do? And so it's exciting and it's fun to see so many people now realizing okay. I've got to do this. And they're jumping back in. I love that I I think. That's a silver lining so many people who have put off designing and developing their own thing like figuring out what they could do what they had to offer crane those additional streams of income like having the time to do that for themselves so many people just put it on the back burner like they maybe. They invested in a program with us but they really didn't invest in themselves like they didn't they. Were like you know what at some point? I'm GonNa take this very seriously. Maybe this summer or maybe when things slow down at work well things have slowed down at work and that in my mind has been a blessing in this because people are starting to realize who they are and what they want and what matters most and I I love. I love being there for you to figure this out. That's my favorite thing to do. Is I just love seeing what? Sometimes you're too close to it to see for yourself. In the interim are podcasting will will change and it might change daily weekly. Who knows. Maybe everything's GonNa go to normal next week but for the time being you can expect podcast twice a week here on the Sean show Monday and Wednesday. Build your tribe. They'll do tribe is really important right now. I think you know I'm GonNa do my best to keep people's nerves common. Help you identify how you can improve your lifestyle how you can grow stronger in this on this. Show build your tribe. We're we're talking about real numbers. Were giving people solutions who have already lost their jobs. Were helping people to understand financially how to prepare and bret has become very intricate and our planning to do that on. Build your tribe. My husband Brian. I know you've listened to many of his episodes financial and money episodes here on the show. One blessing in all of this is mentioned. Both of our kids are home and they're just super smart and they're really in touch with a younger generation and so it's been great having them here talking about how they too can help. Serve our audience during this time. So those are the changes. You'll hear one episode a week right now. I'm build your tribe and we'll be doing to here on the Shinsho. You can quickly subscribe to either of those while. You're listening on a podcast. You'll see that there's a link below in our show notes. It'll take you right to page where you can subscribe on any device your favorite APP etcetera again to here on the Sean Show. One try. Please subscribe to both. We're not planning on going anywhere and as soon as we can return to our regular schedule we will. I also strongly encourage you to follow me on instagram. If you haven't already what's wrong with you follow me on Instagram Brett? And I am brock and Brock Nine. Sierra and the whole family we've been going live answering questions calming nerves and just basically trying to talk real. I think there's every range of opinions that you could possibly imagine on social media. There are those who are like. It's no big deal. Take a deep breath. Everything's GonNa go back to normal next week. Enjoy your time off corona cardio like you know those who are like flowers and Unicorn in positively in lots of Wu. Talk which is great and we need that. Some people really really need that but we also can't just pretend that if we're positive that everything will go back to the way it was. It's it's not going to be nothing is going to be. The same changes happened already. And we're not going backwards. We're moving forward. Changes good changes uncomfortable but changes good. You actually have to take action and have an intention. You have to have an intention and you have to be prudent and smart and plan. But what are you planning for while you're planning for a lot of different things there are quite a few inevitable's Bretton. I sat down this weekend and we literally wrote out if this happens then this if this happens then that if that happens then this so that we don't know which way things are going but at least if things go in any one of ten different directions. We owe plan in place. That's not to say we'll go according to plan. But it gave us a sense of calm but when you take intentionally and you do some planning and forecasting and plan B. Implants in Plan D Plan E and you couple that with a deep sense of faith anxiety all but goes away and I also think that there are those who are nothing but doom and gloom just pointing fingers creating more hysteria getting people anxious nervous and upset then I hope. I hope you'll consider me somewhere in the middle. I'm going to speak honestly but I also I see opportunity and I do know this every horrible deep dark valley we've ever been through. We've come out stronger badder and more blessed as I've said many times over the course of the last three to four weeks. There's a big difference between panic and planning planning is not to say that you are panicked and planning is also not to say that things are gonNA turn out as you plan but to sit and do nothing but panic or worry serves no one all right and the last thing that. I want to mention is that you know. I am a Christian. I don't ever expect you to take on my values or my views or my ethics or my spiritual beliefs might my religious beliefs. But I'm going to talk about faith and regardless of what it is. You believe you need to believe in these times so if the faith that I speak of isn't the same as your faith. That's okay insert your faith but now more than ever I know got his tapping me on the shoulder in saying people need faith as much as we'd love to think that like if I pray harder if I go to church or if I'm a good person this thing will happen in. That thing will happen if I just do the next right thing. Then the right thing will happen and that may be true but when it comes to our plans the way things turn out is not always according to our plan and that is scary unless you have faith and especially if you allow your faith to well up to strengthen in this time what is faith faith is knowing not being able to see it feeling and knowing that God will take care of everything you can let God take on your worry and anxiety. He's in charge of the plan. You're in charge of taking action. You're in charge of how you conduct yourself. You're in charge of your attitude your disposition the way you treat people and the decisions you make. But he's in charge of the plan. Any always has been you see. That's not new. It's always been that way. God has a plan and it may not be our plan. It might not be the outcome that we've intended or that we've developed we've designed but faith is kind of like that feeling you have when someone who's very responsible very alert and very awake is behind the wheel and you know you can take care of yourself by closing your eyes and taking a little cat nap in the passenger seat. If you don't have faith in the person who's driving the car will then you cling to your seatbelt? You tighten it up. You're you clench your fist. You try to help them drive from the passenger seat. You you panic you worry you stress. Your anxiety level goes up. Your stress level. Goes up that that makes the driver more stressed out. And there's absolutely nothing you can do from the passenger seat but if you have faith you just have to relax take care of yourself and do what's right for you knowing. No one has a crystal ball. No one has all the answers in uncertain times. We desperately seek answers seeking answers that no one can give you looking for something that no one can provide isn't helpful. You can watch all the news. Broadcast listened to all of the PODCAST. Read the blogs. Listen to experts but no one has the answers because we've never been here before the only one who has the answers as God so instead turn to your faith. Whatever that is for you turn to your faith in in your faith you will find what it is you need certainty but what if your faith has been shaken or you don't know what you believe you don't know even in fact if you you have a faith you're not sure if there is higher power then where do you find certainty my recommendation. Because I've got friends who are in that space and maybe that's you and I don't think there's any shame in that I mean we're all on a journey. Some of US spiritual journey. Some of us are questioning our faith in this moment. So I want to speak to those of you. Who like so much of this? Just doesn't resonate with you. It doesn't give you a sense of peace sense of calm. My recommendation is that you get around people who do have strong faith and by the way those who have a very strong faith they're going to be loving and caring and not push there's on you but what they can provide for. You is a sense of calm. If you've ever been around someone who's incredibly nervous anxious and upset you you. Can you just know immediately? How contagious that is in. The same is true. When you're around someone who's just super chill very calm and certain and when you find someone who has certain in their faith especially in uncertain times you're likely to find the most grounded people you know and that's who I want you to get around. Be careful where you spend your time in who you spend your time with. Be careful you're not taking in too much negativity too much. Doom and gloom. Or what is your fuelling your heart and your soul with. I've got a special treat for you on on Wednesday. I recorded a a moving meditation. And what that is. It's me am reading to You. Quotes and some really great motivation. Motivational phrases ideas and truths. That are gonNA help you to feel more centered. Help you to feel calmer. And it set to some very kind of relaxing meditative type music. I released this type of podcast for you in the past and they were really well received and I just feel like this. Is the time where you might need to hear that. So the way moving meditation works. Is You just pop on your headphones? And you're meant to move possible like if you can just be doing things around the house keeping yourself moving. Maybe even take a walk outside and just listening to these messages. You you need to inundate yourself with some positive calming messages. And I'm going to provide that for you on Wednesday now more than ever. I thank you so much for subscribing to for listening and staying connected to me on instagram again. It's Schilling Johnson instagram. You can find all of my links to social media below Linked to that in the show notes and I'll be here Wednesday. Oh I can hear a vacuum in the background.

I hope you enjoyed this episode as much as I enjoyed creating it for you. I wanted to mention a tool that I think you're gonNA find incredibly useful especially if you struggle sometimes to know what your purpose is. What is your thing like? What are you called to do? Why are you here? What makes you great? What makes you unique? You know what I think. You're too close to yourself to actually even see it.

Producers Cut: Setting Yourself Up For Success

"Hey welcome back to another producer's cut episode this week. It's setting yourself up for success and this is an episode. That felicia did with her men t and you literally get to sit in on a coaching session. That revolves around performance reviews expectations and objectives. And how to set yourself up for success even when your manager or boss isn't doing a good job on their end with the same work. The great thing about an episode like this is that you're literally sitting in on a coaching conversation. And so they're gonna be little things that they talk about that. You wouldn't necessarily get from a planned episode. I think because conversation yields nuances and offshoots to certain topics and stuff like that. So i think this is going to be invaluable and i hope you enjoy it. Welcome to the show. I in your adver now is different. I actually location in a booming topless show now being named and i have a special with me today. One of my men teas. We're going to keep this. Because jay leader going to talk about how he starts to work towards her promotion and she agreed to share this journey with everybody. Welcome to the show so we have been how we do on my job. Once i graduated college like yeah. And i do. And he moved far away from home. I did a doing very well but today we've connected to visit and talking about the feedback you got. How long ago was that. This was maybe it was very talents. Birla moment kind of to back when we did happen two months ago but it was very was very. It was so okay. So that's number one end formal. A your this is your bus. Yes okay moaning titles bus in. How can he put the time on. My calendar said a chat litter day informal performance. Talk by where you're doing good at doing okay. So what kind of look did i have a my face when you first told me this. Look of shock dino. Why look of shock. Because it's not typical process exactly so i'm shocked because wine as we've been talking organization that you're with currently had a lot of change was isn't a typical and fortune. Five hundred. this is your first premature. I like for Job out of college. So there's no we don't know right and you know what you don't know and so i was asking you. Hey when have you had your performance. Because you've been there at year now and i said well what did you hear. Your performance did performance review. I just think this big formal meeting with the should be some formality. Pro a big thing if fat huge thing. But there's definitely a pettah your calendar. I have a form or some sheet side. Give you some written thinks can give you anything written okay. So he didn't give you anything written. And then i will. Do you have ugly. Hr parole for performance in. You said we have online. I looked at it. The i league i started kind of their service and then i asked. Why did you put in the system. Do you know what your work for the year. You said work every day. Okay and i want. this is very important. I'll tell you this how they said for failure. So you have not been given formal objectives. They have not been put into the performance and then after ten months of working with the company your boss's boss who. How long has he been your boss's boss long. Has he been there in a row. Okay so you've been there seven months. He starts in january in windy. Meet two months ago. So it's june now so y'all met in april so gene Remarks insulin four months four months because your office to tell you what exactly progress your lack thereof after you get near four yes it just feels like there's so much and no one is everyone's just walking around the head comes in for warm. Is the kind of the last thing on her mind. I know when. I had my first being. Because i've had several is i've been in the first manager. Had he's great. And i know he's leaving and trying to get some nuggets that you advise talked and i was like you know. Look i kind of have speech and you know can try to get some nuggets or figure out. Can you have have you now look. I'm not going to blow smoke like you're not gonna get a good view but just a solid reviewing since leaving leaving gauges too much. They know we've never so we have to monday. I know but you didn't tell me that. That's what he's told you. Yeah because he was doing great. You get something. How does a mike. I don't think you're gonna get like. I'm leaving at like a former you process with my six months which usually happen in june. I don't so but his job fiscal year is the calendar give okay. When did you start. Started so familiar would have been right. But you don't even there must like that but in january right. You should've gotten you what you should look into year. And where tracking. Six months then didn't happen back. You have order right. I have either so now. Here comes new boy and he now does acting you. Call the opposite. Formally and i'm using air told because he did take note nuts level and says bullets were one of the bullet points was tied ears. You know sometimes things are as clean or looking at the email powerpoint would what in what medium excel errors where. It's not formatted correctly like he. He had example. Where like. I had something that was given to me. Maybe three hours before the day was doing today's rushing had done and it was several pages of all this data needed to be looked at and i did it. It's done done at seven thirty at night. Because he in the email that he pulled up russia me were where the issue was. time stamped. Seven thirty clearly. Stay late for it. But like they were instances. Where like i could hit like four matte painting income. Make everything so you get pretty in center. She would've liked. It was an error in the numbers or it wasn't at their with spelling errors spelling errors. This was a form editor for his. You know sometimes the the numbers from full number kind of had like a pleasant it'd expand on excels is pretty you know. Sometimes i'm doing a fifty page pl sometime. The margin is is incorrect. Or something like that. But for me at the errors tom when i have a short amount of time to get a when the van last. Did you tell him that. Yeah and when he say he said you know it's our will work on. He didn't make a big deal of it now but which is good. He just wanted you to be aware he feels like you know this is kind of a learning urban did call he knew of my career is her second piece of the second piece of feedback was my follow up and i was like what does that does that mean yes. My dive is is super busy. I managed i think he gave me the dollar amount of the action. the portfolio. Yeah okay get sixty four million okay. Match took a turn for someone pretty new in there for so. I'm pretty busy day to day right. So what did you. That's what i asked him. And and and there are things maybe is. I have to privatize entire. If i can't necessarily don't have time do adnan tasks that some ask for have to privatize it in the left of the sixteen million customers to the tube for the game so he had understood that and i told them you know i have to push back on worth in our out and he he refer me the most part i think when i asked him about the follow. He's in this report and trying to learn looked around. And i just he was always like learning the same thing but if i assure to right so did he now want you to lean on cross functional teams to get information. Maybe look he was hinting at. He didn't say it like that occur that his example was that he looks around. And does things okay so my suggestion. There's make sure you get clear To understand exactly with them because even though this was quote unquote using air quotes again informal. Best believe he expecting to see progress or for you to come back and say hey you this and this is what i'm doing work twists am i. This is becka gave you two months ago right so yet. Another conversation about a sense on have been trying to cut the mistakes in adams had congress has been my actions of Had have you had a foul musee. Here's the things that i've done to address. The feedback engage me. Oh no okay. We're gonna talk about that to do that. And then what was the third third one he felt like my manager was speak for a lot or kaz yet your manual. If he wants to see take more ownership. Yes so i really hate that too because your managers i'll new. She started where she started before you owe me. He's been at the company november. Yeah director i okay. A lot of change how. You're feeling i. Honestly you've had a bunch manages. So how does that make you feel. I feel for awhile while and look. It's better now okay. While i just felt very unsupported unstable kind of running into now offer. I don't i. I don't know what my roles responsibilities are often doing too much or not enough where slack push back and say. Hey you busted should do that. Or mating may make direct focuses on the right thing some sort of that learning curve. i felt unsupported berbers. Several months you know exactly hours addre- spinning my wheels. And i think once my now director stepped into the role. He's kinda processed ability to what. I'm doing just helpful for a while. I'm doing things that are not understanding what i'm doing. I'm just doing it to do because hey a need you to do this. Okay figure out and he did do okay. I'll do that. And there's no guidance no leadership training just three in the water six. Well it says like what. I first started commission. Apple say okay. Cool the instruction god was. Put this number here for this number year. Smells like why gross margin offer today coming so took by now director coming in at to give them credit because he has his team and he made a surprise at how little a new i explain him branca past three months right. Experience and channing has been. It's been a challenge. Feel like it's kind of a map elite shopping hurting you had any experience or have you seen anybody else that maybe you're here that you feel like has been supported in the organization. Do you feel like overall organization justices. This is nuts. Well and i look forward with michael Wall i'm the only person on my level stealing i neutral level work. You have your own portfolio business and everyone else on high level. There's reporting manager. Kinda right but does your. Did you talk to your boss about that yet is she is she. You'll like. I do too much and i advocate. She's actually talked to mike This issue much level. It's just not fair so had recently. Russell yeah okay split. So i feel like now good. I have an appropriate level of work by role ray. I'm still kind of not good. That i kind of feel like it's like a demotion because now i mean the questions. Are you saying for success but yet vision for success. It sounds like the organization has not said success. Is they have fun in ocean and said hey swam the love. Oh by the way we know. You don't know how to swim. So good luck. Yeah that feels really shitty but happens to all of us a lot as black women in corporate america. And so the reason why i went to have this conversation is i hope this resonates with somebody and now let's talk about how even in an environment that has said he would for failure. You can set yourself up for success. So let's talk about how we attack this key that okay so what i want you to do is tomorrow and you get to work you to her early. I want you to block off some time at thirty four minutes. And i want you to sit down in bullet point right out that the back right in an email and i want you to write the email say hey such and such. I was reflecting because a couple of months i was reflecting on the feedback that you gave me in our when we had our conversation on x. day and i wanted to go back and look at the date this so this is called documentation. Oh i wanted to make sure that you knew. I heard you and i wanted to make sure that i didn't miss anything. Here is the feedback. I heard you believe quite the feedback. You hurt and then i want you talk about. We'll strange i haven't were okay. Perfect so go back and say this is what i heard another two bullet point one two three four and in say over the past two months. This is how i worked to address your feedback allergy to bullet point some of the things that you've done give their polls I really believe this is a great development opportunity. And i'd like to set up a time on your calendar to talk about my progress on tomorrow and then i need you to schedule time with him for like next week or the week after right and i want you to sit in the by into this week. It's been two months as a. Hey how's it all on this day. We had this conversation. Just want you to know that. What does two things one is shows journey because nobody really likes this feedback right. But you don't want into seem my you don't care to show that you're being proactive thoughtful about it. And then three it shows that you want to be developing. He wants to get better. And those are the people you work with so you want it. That's you're gonna show that to him in that year awesome then. Did you talk with your boss at the feedback. Choose that oh oh. Both of their. You've felt needed useful. Emmy she didn't say anything separable to make the was informal. Has this make you feel again. Been there berry but too hot and you don't feel you feel like did. Yeah yeah yeah okay. So mason nets them adjusted to you. She your manager up next. Look at this. And i know you guys can't own younger dispatch every fortune. Five hundred pretty much and be surprised if there's one that doesn't them if there's one that does it email me about it and actually calm but every company company has a performance or they have a performance development. Puerto where you officially go in your info is in There's a company office actors in san francisco a lot of times. They're the company that runs us for mini. I got this whole thing like the talent management system for companies like your company is. Abc company will say my eggs or mark conformance or something like that.

So you have to put their feet to the fire and the beautiful thing is once you have your specific like these are the three things three or four or five aims to work on the rest of the year knocked out anything above and beyond that makes you a garage star. You went above and beyond but it. You're just running running. You said just any and everything telling you do any and everything you just doing any and everything supposed to be doing and then how.

BONUS: Our Favs!

"What's up guys? This is a special bonus episode. It's pretty straightforward wagon and go around the room each give you top financial results recommended. Obviously this podcast is go to. Here's some about other favorite resources helping you get your shit together. Okay so the book I'm recommending is called the Barefoot Investa by Scott Pape and yes it is Australian but plays to stick with me guys. It was the first book that I read. That really got me thinking about how to divide my money up. It's got really practical tips for making show. You can afford the life that you want but also making you question. What kind of life do you want? Do you want to Big Bend? See Things. Do you want to spend your money on travel? What are your priorities so the Bedford? Investor is a really great way to kind of get used dotted even if there is like stuff about Australian retirement. The you should ignore the rest of it is super great for anyone. That's fire at US FILE. So My podcast recommendation is bad with money with. Gabby done gabby religious like interviews a bunch of different people from different backgrounds telling all the true stories about how money has impacted their lives and she approaches it as someone who like really did not understand money and was terrible with it and has gotten better over time so you can kind of feel like you up hot of the journey about learning more. And it's okay if you don't like have every piece of info about the finance world already that's a really good one so my website recommendation number one is my website. Oh my newsletter which is better. Have my money DOT SUB STACK DOT COM. Which is a weekly newsletter. I write about stocks and investing and just like feelings really about money and my own investing journey the other sides are really like actually facebook groups so one is coach she spends and another is code women in pursuit of FBI just financial independence and they just had these really great stories and they're also kind of funny because people are often sort of Branca's so it might be stories about like his how to cut your hair all the time and his spent twenty dollars on groceries for the next three months. I really liked him as a mix of being able to kind of see everyone's stories and also be like yeah. I don't care about money like that much so tweet the other day that was like Bang Browser or expensive. Just take to snow cones and some dental floss. You have a facebook group. So like crazy The website that I recommend is raising Benjamin Dot Com. First and foremost is my website. Sambas second I teach the basics of financial tools. What they mean and how they're used and do it in a language that anyone can understand another tunnel. Podcasts out there listen to and of course listen to a podcast right now. But one of my favorite podcasts. Listen to about money is masters of scale actually created by. Reid Hoffman the founder of Lincoln and massive scale. Tcu The business side of all of our favorite companies in tech listening to this. Podcast will teach you how value older companies as well as new tech companies. Yes so I read a ton of books. One of my favorite books that are recommended if you learn about finance is the intelligent investor by Benjamin Graham. This book actually teaches you how to look at companies from an investor's perspective. If you're looking to buy I stock. This book will literally coach you through making sense of all of it. I love that book. It's a good one of my best friends bumping my bet they last year. I've read a couple of pages. It's six hundred pages Kubrick it's actually currently propping up my monitor paperweight if you don't finish it. My favorite website for our audience is called personal capital on personal capital. Dot Com so website. Where you can link up all your accounts whether that's at a bank or brokerage or your credit cards and it will let you know what your net worth is. The other cool thing is I can tell you your historical net worth so a year from you can see how you've progressed right. I've been making these changes in my life of paying off my credit cards. I've been this money in my 401k. So you can see the balance change over time so it reinforces good behavior. It also shows you every transaction and cross all of your account so it's really helpful to see like to double check like review your transactions instead of like Porn Bank statements looking at brokerage account. Or what have you like? Did I really by that? Or what's hitting my account so you can see everything that's hitting all of your accounts and it's really good for freelancers as well because it'll show you every transaction so you might find some write offs in there if you if you review. It's in there. That sounds round. Isn't free if your net worth exceeds one hundred thousand dollars. You'll get phone calls from personal capital as financial advisers because they do have an arm or they'll invest your money and they'll get paid that way but otherwise it's free and there was no advertising either. My Book recommendation for our audience is called the simple path to wealth. The author is J. L. Collins is a no nonsense book about learning how to take the money that you have and put it into the market reducing your fears about what's going to come down come down the line. There's a lot of practical advice about what happens if the bear market calms. What happens if I don't have the cash what happens? If it's just like Sh- quiets your fears. Everything's GonNa be okay. It's the simple past. Stick to the plan and you will be wealthy eventually. That's a great book. I love that one. I love it because he shares his personal journey and he kind of like overcomes his own biopsies throughout the book. So He's like well. What happened to the stock market is going to be down? And he tells you exactly what he went through so he's already outlined his emotional journey with investing so the reader is already prepared for it and also. I'm sorry I still have your copy. I'll get it back to you sometimes. No worries My favorite podcasts. Were audience is called the money guys show. It's two dudes in their forties. Talking about money. They run an investment advisory firm but the content is actually really relevant to anyone. It's like really basic stuff like how to get the best rate on a loan on a car that I'm about to purchase and how not to get ripped off it. Just really distill some really difficult concepts down to bite size nuggets of actionable insights and it's been around for ten years. Yeah they have so much knowledge over decades and decades of experience. Greg is guys my book. Recommendation is get a financial life personal finance in your twenties and thirties by Beth. Kobliner you don't have to be in your twenties and thirties to read this book. It's just a fantastic primer on personal finance. It when anyone asked me like how do I get started on personal finance? Send them a copy of this book right off. The RIP. Not only is informative but it's also really easy to read so you come out with a lot of knowledge but don't feel like you fall asleep along the way. My favorite website is nerdwallet. It is awesome because there are tons of resources and it's great for a quick answer. They've got into schools and calculators. They make money from advertisers but they have a very what I believe to be a sound editorial policy so huge fan of nerdwallet. I really love note wallet and some of the recommendations the bank that you should go with something like that. They're really good. It's kind of like a a wire cutter or strategist but like for money totally. Sometimes you don't need to read a whole book about something. Sometimes you just want to educate yourself quickly so you can do more research. Yeah read my favorite money. Podcast besides get money is how a built this with guy. Ross it's extremely inspirational. If you're a business owner he just interviews the founders of companies everyone from the CEO while former CEO of work to honest company to Patagonia so to listen to these really long format interviews with them is so insightful and so inspiring Kabul this is so fire great interest onto all right. That's it as usual if you like. Get money be sure to hit followed face. Peace Love I was like I've never said on my entire laugh about that. My mates bribes but I would say.

Yes Charlotte night both the day after the the bars closed on March sixteenth and that day we both got sick. Wow, and she. It was it was more mild for her, but still you know a fair amount of discomfort, but for me it was two and a half weeks I was I was down counted. I was scary, but you know I didn't I was lucky enough not to have to go to the hospital and. And Shar had asthma or life, so she kinda like coached me through the breathing issues like the shallow breathing was the scariest part because you're like I know. I know I can take a deep breath, but in general I just generally feel like I'm not getting enough. Oxygen and I'm tired all the time and I can't focus. But you know. I luckily I made it through. That's my wife Emily that's our worst. Nightmare. Is the shallow breathing like that within her into a full on panic? Yeah Yeah. It's me. It's so scary life. We joked now that there were nights when she had a, she had hit nine one and was waiting to hit it again, but luckily it was never got that bad and I'm I'm through it and for our business. You know after we're both healthy again. We We decided to reopen the bars for business to business. Do that a little over a month. and just trying to find ways to hustle like we're open for a few days in the after a few hours in the afternoon on weekends on like sunny days, the community's been really supportive, and that's everybody's been really generous. and we, we've been spending a lot of our energy trying to raise money for our staff. Because yeah, you know it's like they're out of work. And so we started venomous, so you know to support those guys, and I? Obviously you can check my check my twitter at Flop Pat, if are a giving sort and have access of. Money donate feel free to donate to. are out of work staff, although I think there's plenty plenty of other. People should be donating to well. That's amazing man, and that's cool that you guys are helping to take care of your staff. I mean bars and people who do live performances are getting hit the worst, and you're both of this. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I mean. I said it and I keep saying it. You always have to go people over property. If you support the people around you, they will. Like as a business owner, you're crazy not to do again to help them. That's great. You look good man. I like that short hair. Oh, man! That was did it did it myself in the backyard ice? It looks good. I shaved my head about A. Cheese probably a month ago and then it's back to like a sort of normal short level now. Are you thinking about changing up at all mixing it up going for like a tonsure or something something wacky now I did shave you know had that big ass, a beard and a shave that completely off. About a month ago and now I'm I'm back to sort of short dad beer level. Yeah you. You look like a like a guy who'd come into my bar and ordering. But not a double, IPA just a regular one. Thank God I thought it was a real prick there for a second. As damaged. So. Where did you grow up? I? Don't know a lot about your back story, even though we've hung out a few times, oh. Yeah I grew up in Fort Wayne Indiana the second largest town in Indiana and. I don't know like grew up in I grew up in the suburbs. My mom was a high school English teacher at. My father was a financial planner and broker. My parents were both teachers. So I thought I was going to do that. For most of my young adult life I was an English major knows like now I'll just be an English teacher because I like to read and I like to write, and I don't like to. Physically work too hard, so that seems perfect. I. Think we're in the exact same boat. I had mean I turned out. I wasn't a particularly good student, so that didn't help, but. And when I applied for I, think applied for teach for America and I did okay, but in the interview process. I think he was teach for America I can't remember which was or maybe it was the New York teaching fellows. That was probably it's been a while. I. I was doing pretty well until I hit one interviewer. Who was just not having? It was like saw through all my bullshit like he saw to the core of me and was like. You're not ready for this. And he I think he was right well what I'm. What were your formative years like? We always like to talk to guests about their sort of like eleven to seventeen year old years. And what you're into back then. I mean I guess that's kind of tough like. Grown, and as I, said my mother, my mother was an English teacher and she was always. she always really encouraged the. Fantasy and SCI FI. She was accused of that stuff. I thought you were going to say. She always made me watch dead poet's society on the loop. No, my mom was the one who like when I was a kid. She was like she saw robocop and was like Stewart would love this man. I watched it and I'm like I. Do love this. I'm scarred for a little while. It'll be a that and the other. Another big one was creepshow to. This movie is hilarious and at the time as a child I did not find it hilarious at all now it's funny, but like that whole sequence with the raft, and the like the sentient slick blog monster Dr L. for years I couldn't go swimming in a lake without being nervous. I'd always have to pop up over the water real quick to make sure a oil slick monster wasn't coming to strip the flesh off. So. Your mom was basically awesome is what you're saying. Yeah, my mom, my mom was an remains awesome. She didn't turn into a big jerk. No, she she's, she's still cool. Yeah! Any siblings. And you know we. He's a year apart, so grown up, we you know. Stuff well yeah, some X. we did everything together and then as soon as we had the option, we never spent any time together. Yeah. I got a brother. WHO's three years older and that turned out to be a pretty good distance and he was a pretty great in is a pretty great brothers, so there was never like bullying or making fun of me. It was just kind of all pretty pretty great. Did you guys was that kind of relationship where he was able to pass down? Cool stuff to you, so you could seem cool amongst all your friends. Yeah, and that's you know that's why. I always ask the sibling question because that's how so much of our culture comes to us as either. Some influential person in your class or neighborhood? It's always someone a little older, but. Think Memories, of think I've talked about this before in the show of. My parents were pretty strict as far as what I watch not watch when I was growing up. And you know you you get to that point sooner when you're three years older, so my brother would sit up late at night I. Remember on two different occasions in. Spent probably about an hour each talking me through alien and apocalypse now in as much detail as possible. Yeah, yeah, it was very quiet. On a less cooler version of that, I used to run a hobby store and I used to have this. Irregular at my hobby store glazier. He was a union glacier, so he would that. Installing glass okay I didn't. Work. I? Feel like you're. A handy guy figured he'd be. Called Glassy as Only when they're at a French restaurant. So he, he's a glazier and he he would. He would hang out the shop on days when he wasn't working, which was a lot and would just kind of sit at the hobby station like paining his war, Hammer soldiers, and whatever teenage boys were around would come in like sit around him, and he would regale them with tell tales of like movies and stuff like I remember there was a day where like over the course of four hours he just recounted like three or four seasons of Dexter to these kids. I'm like okay man. Ended in the same way. Yeah exactly. So. Yeah, and I mean I think another big influences for me. My my mother's older brother, so my uncle, he, he was a big. He was a big Gamer and a fantasy guy. He was also a teacher. He was he was like the kind of cool uncle that had the basement full of like board games and like. Sci Fi paperbacks had the best covers if you. I mean me late like it's not all Malaysia, or whatever, if a oh, but you know, it's that kind of thing Mainly, like cool alien standing on top of like a a brightly colored mountain with star ships battling above him. But so he like going to visit him was always a big Was You know a big influence on me and obviously defined my aesthetics? Now was that a situation where you were just sort of hovering nearby, and and getting it by Osmosis or was he kind of guy would sit down and be like Stuart. This is you know whatever fantasy novel and you need to read this. It was definitely not that a hands on it was a lot of Osmosis and occasional. Like Hey, Stewart should watch. Stewart should watch this and I'm like y'all watch now SOKAIA. Like as a kid. I was like I have no idea what this is, but I love it. I loved it to the point that I got a I remember forcing my friends at a birthday party to watch this like early, English dub of now Sokaia and I think it was called valley the wind at the time. I can't remember. But I remember forcing the kids at my slumber party to watch this movie and getting in a huge fight with one friend because he hated it so much really. Yeah. He really wanted to watch the three stooges instead. Well two different people. Yeah. I love talking to you about this stuff, and then hearing about it on the fly Palce, which by the way flop house has been I, went on a long sidetrack with the offerman. Adam Scott YouTube rem. PODCAST but. Have since come back in I've got a ton of flop houses, and they have been my sav lately. In any time in a really dark place flop house is is has been my light for the past couple of years. is just so fun and so awesome and I love always hearing about. A love that you bust the myth that. you don't have to be. Some sort of snot nosed short Weirdo to be into figurines and fantasy, and all this stuff because you're packaged in this giant handsome man. But you're still such a nerd, at, heart. Thanks yeah. So. It's similar to finding out that Henry. Yeah. It's a lot like finding out that Henry Cavill is spending his quarantine time, painting or hammer figures really. Yeah, yeah, that was that was a big. There was a big deal for me was finding. Henry cavill in like. WHO's. WHO's the? Guy I can't remember the Magic Mike what is married or taking. Sofia Vergara Oh. Magic Mike the main guy. Know. Joe Manganiello. Oh. Yes, sure. He's a huge guy, really Yeah, Oh, yeah, enormous! He and I ended anonymous because he's very muscular. Like they you can. You can check it out, but they on. In the when they bought a house together, he converted their wine cellar because neither he nor is regarded drink apparently. And they yeah. They converted their wine cellar to like a DND Like beholder, hanging from the ceiling, and all his miniature is and what. That's pretty cool. Do you still paint miniatures? Oh, yea, I. Mean I used to work for a company that did it and I took some time off but. I still do it it's. It's something I don't think I'll ever be able to shake. You know one of those hobbies that. Like any time ago away from it on on drawn back to it, yeah, it's something I've never like I didn't grow up into fantasy that much I pretended to read Lord of the Rings, but I really didn't. I pretended to read chronicles of Narnia, but I really didn't. And that's about as deep as I went. It wasn't a play a couple of times, but I never dove in too hard And I'm not sure why, but I could see the pleasure and the zinn pleasure of painting, tiny things because I love small things. And I could see being cool. Here, I looked like I. Think I got into it initially because I like you know. I grew up with an uncle who was a big Gamer and war Gamer and And, my father was also a big. My father was really big in Napoleonic wargames, which is loud. Those those dudes are serious I. Bet the at the time I. Don't know what what the communities like now, but at the when he was doing in the seventies, it was like if you don't paint their buttons, right, you can't play with that model. And like a bunch of big sculptors from that time died early deaths because of lead poisoning. The things we love. But he. So I got into it through like liking to play strategy games and wargames. And then, but over time like. It's no fun to just play with little plastic guys. You want or metal guys at the time. Yeah, you. You want to look like the box or at least cited so. They're meant to be painted right? Yeah Yeah. I mean obviously depends on the figurines, but. My my first love, and the one that I keep going back to always wore hammer. Okay, just like It's a British company Games. Workshop makes it and. They know they make their like little twenty eight to thirty male models that. Currently. They're all plastic figurines that you assemble hand paint, and then you play battle game so. Dan that sounds fun. And I I used to like I. I worked for Games are shop for seven years as a store manager, and as a regional manager and a trainer wow. Yeah, and it was a lot of fun and probably stunted my emotional growth for a while because I exclusively hung out with. Teenage boys or grown men with the maturity level of teenage boys and. It was fun and I'm glad I'm not doing anymore, but. I still still love soldiers. That's awesome. Man I think that's really cool. I would love to swing by your place in Brooklyn next on there and. Check everything out. When did you get into comedy? I mean. I guess I would say like. I got into comedy through podcasting. We got into, I didn't really. I, didn't I didn't do much performing. Growing up. Probably just do exclusively to like fear of failure. Like all and. I mean like. I remember for school projects. If there's ever an opportunity to make like a short film I would do those sorts of things, and those were often what I I would think. They were pretty funny. Really really like actual comedy was through the podcast when Dana and I started doing it back in two thousand seven. And that was just because Dan was A. was trying to get involved in as many avenues like trying to explore as many avenues for comedy and one of the things that we did together for fun was watching bad movies and talking about it. And, so we thought hey, in two thousand seven. There is not very many movie podcasts in fact. There were many podcasts, so i. don't think I realize you guys have been around that long. As in August. Yeah, in August. It'll be what thirteen years that's crazy. Yeah, we're SORTA right around there. I think we were right behind you. So if you started August of two thousand seven. I want to say we started in. Spring of two thousand eight I might be wrong on that, but that feels about right. Look at us us long beards of podcasting. Well, and it's just crazy. Man always say that I feel like. We bought a with Steffi. Should now we bought a a nice little house in what turned out to be a great neighborhood. just time in a lot harder to make a dent now also we I wake up every morning and count my good fortunes. Absolutely. I mean that's the thing like. I've talked to multiple people who are much more talented and have a larger fan base in general than me. Who are like Oh. Do you have any tips on how to how to? Grow your your podcast. LISTENERSHIP and I'm like I. Don't know like do it for a long time plus. I I know that advice sucks. Now I kinda does Ask us that stuff, too, and Mike We got in at the right time and it. Kinda just caught hold and. People's started sharing it with their friends. You can't make that happen. It's like saying create a viral video. Yeah Yeah exactly yeah. Yeah. That's what all the entertainment executives do. Give me a marvel cinematic universe, please. The for me, it's. A thing where it's like I guess. Outside of doing it for a long time I guess. Try to try to be positive and like learn from your mistakes. Admit when you're wrong. Like. Try to grow. That's pretty funny. Man, 'cause you guys are one of my favorite parts about flop house is. and it makes sense now that you guys have been doing this long as how how annoyed you sometimes get with one another. I mean I, think we're. We, don't we? Don't reach the heights of the greatest podcasts in the world that does boys. We're where Mike and Are Constantly on a verge of killing each other, but. Now. You guys aren't like that at all, but. It's it's always a fun. Aspect of it is occasionally when NFL, like it usually comes around when. You are the recapture. And Elliot starts on one of his Elliott. Elliott Kaelin. SOLILOQUIES and he seem to get pretty annoyed that which is fun all in good fun course. I mean I feel like part of the I feel like part of the appeal of our show is that we are all good friends with each other for a long time and thousand percent. No one ever gets their feelings hurt. You can tell in. Poor Dan, he's just. It's so good like I. Do know you guys. It helps, but I'm sure you get the same stuff that we get all the time on stuff you should know which is people feel like they're your friends, and that's why our show becomes popular. It also means that like. If sometimes, there's the occasional. Issue where because Elliott Ni-. Part of the part of our show is that we give Dan a hard time sometimes. Really. Guess I should admit to it now, WOW! but the. But sometimes folks who are listeners will be like. Oh, I can also give. Time and not the same like. Oh, no, no, no, no, and that's when you guys. It's like you know when you have a brother. You're in a fight, and then someone else comes in, and then all of a sudden. The brothers are united again. Against the common enemy. Yeah! I think I can't remember which one I was recently recently, listening to Dan finally fucking lost it. God Damn. You guys get I fucking. Say One thing. Now I have encountered recently. It's I. Don't know how you are with doing shows, but. It is one of those things where we'll do it. And then almost everything I said except for the few things that stick in my head and make me keep me up at night, regretting right in my mouth. But aside from that everything else falls out of my brain immediately sort of permit a little bit, I should remember a little bit more because we have to study all that stuff, yeah! But the best part is like Dan clearly got genuinely annoyed. But you guys like you did not give a shit and you just kept plowing ahead and got a laughing about it, and that's sort of the only way to handle it, yeah. We're not going to pump the brakes too much now. No So, what's your deal with bad movies like you said you and Dan would watch them in college. Do. You get tired of watching bad movies now, or is it still kind of a pure joy? Oh I? Mean Yeah. I get tired of it. It's it's nice because I like I love watching movies and. I started so I started watching bad movies in so in high school, I had a group of friends who were the same group of friends I would play like dungeons and dragons, and the like world of darkness, Roleplaying Games shadow run. When we weren't doing that. We would go to like blockbuster. Video and rent all the bad horror movies they missed. And so you know each weekend. There'd be about like three or four tapes or DVD's. And we just put them on and watch him and a lot of a lot of it was sitting around complaining about how bad they were. And so when? When I moved to New, York and I didn't have that group of friends anymore. Dan and I. Even though Dan went to the same college, we weren't. We weren't friends at the time as a few years older than me. He was a theater guy I was I don't know like a dumb guy. And we would but when we were both in New York together, we would find ourselves at saying the same parties for. Attendees of Early College and we would talk about things in general and we had. A similar love of watching movies, and that led to us, having our own little movie nights, and that's what led US starting the podcast. I think it was the story. I like to tell us that we there was a night. Would we rented? When there was still a video store on Flatbush Avenue, we rented. Jenny McCarthy's dirty love and It's fantastically bad movie and. I remember sitting on the couch Dan Falling Asleep on the floor and snoring and. Yeah I feel. Like, it was that was the last movie night we did together before we started started the podcast. Why did you move to New York? Aside from the fact that moving to New York has always a great idea. Yeah, maybe not this week, but this is. Exactly. The. No I moved to New York. I was dating. I was dating a girl who. Wanted to work in the, she had a background in theatre and nonprofit. And so she wanted to move to New York because that was a great place to do it and I at the time I was working on my own comics, so I'm like I can do this anywhere. And then we like a week before. I was living in Pennsylvania before that and right before we moved i. I saw that Games workshop the hobby. Company was looking for managers, and I saw that they were having a recruitment day in New York, and so I went to this recruitment day, and they hired me on the spot, and so I had a job before I had actually physically moved to new. York which was crazy. It's fucking amazing. And then, of course, the girl I came to New York with left. But I stayed because you know. And I'm still here. WHAT YOU'RE! I moved to New York in two thousand and three. Wow. It's been around, yeah! Yeah and Then four years later, we started the podcast and then two years after that. I started dating my lovely wife and. and. She say born and raised Brooklyn her. Yeah so. I don't think we're going anywhere. That's super cool man well. Everyone should support your bars. Charlene's and hinterlands, and what was the other one? The knees Bar Minnie's bar. It's very cute. Is a small. Yeah I mean all of our bars are small. It's. Like no! That's awesome man. I can't wait to get back there. I Miss hanging out with people in person and then Dan was able to come by when we did our last. Bell Hal shows one night. I think you were working. And I was supposed to go to your bar and wasn't able to show. Bring up to hook that up. I remember the last time. I got twenty years shows in Brooklyn. He was like three days after the bar opened and I like my every part of my body hurt and. But it was. It was a fun night. He was great. Well thanks dude. So I think let's move into ricky. Oh the story of Ricky, or is it ricky Ho because it sounds like you're saying. Ricky, Ho. I mean I think as characters name, depending on which DUB or sub you're watching. His. The character's name is ricky, Ho, but the title the name of the movies rikio. Right Rikio. Ricky which is so I guess. Let's Talk Kung Fu movies and martial arts movies because. I was always a guy who wanted to like. Those movies wanted to be one of those guys that knew all that stuff about those movies. But I just never tried them out that much. SORTA like with DND like. Some of these cultures like really appealed to me, but I always stop short of investing time in it, and so this is legit one of the. First Times I've ever seen a movie like this like all the way through. Oh Wow. Okay well. It's a little tough because there are new movies like this. Only. Yeah I don't know I. Mean I don't have anything to compare it to I think. Some pieces of like some Bruce Lee movies and stuff like that, but this is really a this is a sub genre or what? How do you classify this? This is a this is a crazy movie. obviously based on. It's based on a Japanese Manga and it's Chinese production. And it obviously has a lot of martial arts elements in it. But there's also like a lot of like crazy. Practical Monster Effects in it was such a gory movie I think at the time it was. It got like the like the the equivalent of like an x rating in China. How it was the first it was one of the first movies do so. That wasn't actual pornography. Because it's. It's a very gory gruesome movie. But obviously, that's for me. That's part of the charm is because of how how nuts it is. Yeah I mean I had a great fucking time watching this. We'll see that and I. Think you Termi onto a Genera that I will explore more for sure. I mean I don't i. don't mean to distance this martial arts movies in a way because you should watch more martial arts movies. There's some there's there's so many out there. There's so many good ones both current, but also like like there's so many great. Jackie Chan movies. Yeah, couple of those actually now that I think about it. But this is different. Yes, this is this is Jackie Chan movie. Now it's not. Where you gonNA, say. I was just I just got the police story and police story two on the criterion collection blu rays so long since I've seen them I got I got those the same day that I went and saw avengers and game a movie I like a lot, but watching rewatching police story the same day I'm like. The adventure stuff is cool, but Jackie Chan beating up thugs. Using a car is a jungle gym so cool. Yeah, and there's something to be said for like what brings you joy It's kind of silly, but it's a rudimentary question that one might ask oneself like adventures. Movies are awesome, but you probably had more fun watching police story again. Maybe without the romantic plotline stuff, but everything else is so good. That mall stuff out wow. I think. I've seen police story in How such a wealth and I mean I'm sure this doesn't even qualify, but did watch a lot of the early John. which I thought was amazing. I mean it's a little different, but I mean there's. I feel like they obviously have some connections. Yeah I. Think the like the. Some of the action is shot. Obviously, scholars will probably say I'm a fool, but. But I think like the bullet. Ballet's John Woo have grounding in martial arts tradition. Well. This movie was Bat Shit. Crazy had a ton of fun washing it. The story is about. Well what's the story of Ricky and it has another element which I'm a huge fan of is that it's a prison movie a love. Love Prison Movies and this movie is said in in two thousand one when. Prisons have become privatized. which is weird to watch in two thousand, twenty and seeing that reality sort of playing out. Yeah? Yeah, so it is kind of fun to watch. I mean obviously this is a prison movie and it's I'm sure we'll talk about all those things but I loved. It is in twenty, two thousand one. Yeah, and what you're come out ninety or ninety one ninety one. Yeah, yeah, it came out and ninety one, but it looks like it came out in eighty three. And then all the best ways yeah. So I have a question I think you are. You're the man to answer this I'm watching this movie. I'm having having a great time I'm laughing. At. The the poor dubbing is always great and funny the the weird voice actors that they use are always amazing and funny then. The super goriest Shit is so funny to me. Yeah, what is the intention of the filmmaker in these movies? Oh well. I mean I. think that's tough like I. There's I feel like there's a way that you can look at a movie like. Look at something like black dynamite for instance, which is a movie that is big and crazy and has over the top action. And is it the same time clearly intended to be funny like it's clearly meant to also be like comedy. Right? whereas I can't tell with this movie. I think there's stuff where they're like. Yes over the top and silly, that's that's what this movie is. Deadly serious about how silly it is okay. But it's it's tough I can't. I can't tell you if if maybe it's lost in translation for me, I don't know. But the I watch it I. Don't I don't know if I've ever watched this movie dubbed. I must have, but I've the copy I re watched was I watched subtitled. Okay, and so there's. Obviously I think the I'm sure there's differences even there between those subtitles and dub, so like guessing that some characters might even be named differently. But Yeah I can't tell I don't think I don't necessarily think it's I feel like if sometimes if a filmmaker shows their hands too much I, try and play to safe. It can be safe in the sense that you're like. Oh, we're doing this silly thing, but we know it silly, so it's okay, It can be at least for me. It can be a little distancing whereas a movie like this is, so it's not winking at me like it is demand this. This is the movie it is I. I am able to enjoy it more I guess. Yeah, that makes sense I mean there's an earnestness to it. I think in. Their! Ramping up, and and trying to best an out do other films in the creativity the kills, and the Gore factor, and maybe some of the camp is well. It feels genuine and I. Think I mean I'm not gonNA speak for the filmmakers, but it seems like they genuinely love this stuff and they're trying to out. Do other movies, but I'm sure they know like this is also a lot of fun, and it's people shouldn't go into it thinking. It's like a like a scary kung-fu. Prison Monster Movie. No. No exactly I mean there's just the way it's edited at times where there's there's a shot where he's fighting, I can't remember. The. He's fighting. One of the gang leaders any slaps him in the back of the head, and his eyeball pops out of his head. It hits the ground, and immediately a group of crows fly down. Favorite part. Dude. Bat Shit crazy I loved it every time. Something like that happened My wife heard me laughing in the. She's like what are you watching? I don't even know what I'm watching, but it's. It's kind of amazing and I think the key to of a movie like this is to. Get. In and get. Out Ninety minutes. Kim. There's keep it moving so much stuff in this ninety minutes. I was just trying to think if I was like. If I was trying to do a hard summary of all the action of story of Ricky. It feels like a two hour movie easy two and a half hours just because of how much how many characters there are, how much stuff is happening and I? Feel like part of the joy. The movie is that it never lingers too long. It just keeps moving. And it's great. Now it's always i. mean it goes from. I mean. A movie like this. There is a plot than a story per se and in fact there is not even say there's now that I'm thinking about sort of the flashbacks and ricky and his girlfriend, and what got him there. It is the story ricky. But, you're really there to to see the next amazing fucked up thing. Yeah and there's there's a lot of those I mean so. I like that, so you know we. Privatize prison. It's two thousand one in this harsher. We've addressed that our hero is. Ricky is a young master of a breathing technique Monkey Gong and that gives him super strength although I think he was always strong. It's tough to tell. And he has, he is inducted into prison, and he has bullets still lodged in his chest, was shot by gangster veneer heaps. He keeps souvenirs. Yeah. That's great when they're first checking him into the prison and the X ray machine goes off. And they're like get over there. He's got like a bomb in his chest, but I also like that. So Ricky's spends the rest of the movie dismantling people com- like physically completely like he's punching people's hands off punching their guts out. Yeah, CETERA! ETC, but all of these fights are started by by someone else they're. Attacking him. That he even when he is defeated, an enemy, who he had has just punched their face off. He's still trying to save their life. Yet. Other Tarzan, who he's trying to save from being smoked by the industrial compactor that prison cell phones. Or when when that gang leader is trying to strangle ricky with his own intestines, ricky is still trying to save their lives. He is and that's one of the key point to the movie and of the character. Is that In his mind, he's just a prisoner along with all of them, and yet the real enemy and you say you haven't seen the DUB version I. Don't know what the narration says in the subtitle, but at the beginning. Is Very kind of flatly laying out with the do husband the prison. Says the warden is the most powerful man in this prison after him. The assistant ordinary you get the most facetime with and actually played by the father of the actor who played ricky. Oh no way. Yeah, Father Son Team. I guess he he'd been accomplish actor. On in his own right, and then after at some point retired to just be his. Coach agent etc. Oh! Wow, that's amazing, his Yeah he's he's one of the grey hairs in this movie and his. His office is set up. When you first meet him, he's got a a desk like this huge executive desk with this just enormous buffet spread, and in two chefs, serving him, and then a wall of porn vhs. Right! He's got a complete like stuffed like end of end of shelf to end of Shelf Library. Like you know that he had to make some hard choices. Put a couple of tapes in a cardboard box somewhere because they didn't fit. And he is. He is missing an eye. which you know, there's so much eyeball play in this movie. It's I. Don't know what the count is for eyeballs gouging out popping out. Being placed back in heads only come out again and his eyeball. Is this because it's in a glass of water that he's drinking? And that's the reveal that that's his eyeball. which he apparently can keep, what does it? He squirts out of it one point. What was that Mints Oh? So that was for real. No jokes in this movie. It's so crazy I. What? What is that all about? Would you like a man and he scored? People. I have no idea and I'm also trying to wrap my head around the idea of like so eight of the eyeball was completely submerged in water. The fake I was completely submerged in water or the midst. Or maybe that was the point like the minster supposed to like fresh water. On. It was so good, but also address that in addition to having a fake i. he also has like a like a bond villain style fake claw hand. He's got a claw handed uses. Yeah, he's had sort of a double hook that he uses to which brings up another point, but he has a hook that he uses to drag by the mouth of various places throughout the movie but at one point he is, he is clicking the two hooks together as if they are fingers and the whole time islands like. That like connected to his tendons and stuff like how is that happening? I. I am not going to guess at the at the prosthetic technology two thousand one. No. I didn't explore at an very closely. Of course another thing I loved about this movie is and by the way when people like listening haven't seen this and they hear Stewart say punch their guts out and punch their face off like you mean that literally. That's literally what happens. Yeah, yeah I. Mean All these things literally happen? I mean the I would say those words. Completely turn you off I would recommend not watching this movie otherwise totally watch this movie. But he is the thing I love about. This movie is how much everyone survives. Oh yeah like literal disembowelment yet they will rise back up and fight again. It's amazing. Yeah I feel like it's I. Mean I guess it reminds me of. Points out. I guess that this movie has it comes from a like a violent Manga and I feel like it reminds me of some like. Violent Manga books like whether it's physical. The northstar guy ver- or things like that like that that those comics that I would read as a kid and love because of how horrifically Gory Vail were. Did you. Did you read this one? I have not read this one, nor have I. I've never read the. I've never read the book nor have I I. Don't I? Don't actually know if it's readily available without going to. You know like going to piracy site, right? And nor of I tried to track down. There's apparently A. A somewhat connected sequel to this movie. That was made, but I'm not one hunt like there's conflicting reports as to whether or not it exists, or if it if it is actually a sequel. Well the guy who plays ricky is fantastic like he's got the Bod. He's got the looks like he is total bad ass in this movie and you know. His moves are cool. He's got that rage that builds up when he closes his first fist every time. It's interesting that he can. Sometimes he's just punching people, and sometimes he's punching through people when he can summon that extra power I guess. The the Qigong and he. And it's. Built on the hatred of the injustice of an unjust society. That, that actor I was I was looking up on IMDB in preparation for this and he has gone onto. He's in the man movies. A couple of the man movies, which is a if you're looking for a martial art series? I would recommend checking those out. All right they're great. I don't know what kind of martial arts this is not well schooled in the various disciplines, but This one is I'm a big fan of when they're actually doing the real stuff the A lot of I feel like. The matrix sort of gang, some of this like the straight arm, punching in very sort of a dance like of ballet, like really really pleasant to watch the I very fluid very pretty yeah I. Mean I I'm sure the lookout skis were. You know they. They clearly were wearing that influence on their sleeve. Bringing bringing that style of martial arts to Western audiences is awesome and obviously turned out turned out pretty well. Yeah, worked out pretty well for their caskey's. There's also some beautiful shots. I mean I don't want to. It is a fun crazy movie, but Very campy, but like that shot in the rain when he's just so upset and he's doing all this sort of Solo kung-fu in the rain. It's amazing. That's after. He put the rebuilt toy What train? Toy at the the dead guy. Yeah Yeah. Well, that's you know that's that's this movie. People are treated poorly. some justices found through violence. Yeah, that guy man he gets! I mean I feel like the first fifteen minutes of the movie or that guy, just being a fucking punching bag. That's part of like I feel like that also has its roots in a that kind of like like a prison movie or a lot of exploitation movies. Is The you know you you have to? YOU HAVE TO BUILD UP THE VILLAINS TO BE SO villainous. Yeah, so like unreasonably villainous, so that are You don't feel bad when the hero punches their hands and faces off. Yeah and I mean the like he said we. He's usually ends up siding with the person. He just fought because they're all a part of this system. That's keeping them down and the two real villains in the movie or the assistant were. And then finally you get to meet the warden kind of in the last act who comes in sort of dressed like a pimp, and he has this weird idiot man child. So disturbing somehow. Yeah the will like that combination of like. Well, this obviously like pampered spoiled child. that is seems to be there in part for comic relief, but it's it's next to this like terrible vicious warden character yeah! It's. It's a little tough, but also no, they're they're. They're horrible, bad guys. I think the end when he when the sun finally shows up with a literal sort of beanie schoolboy outfit and we should point out. He's not like eleven he's. You know what in twenty s or something. Looks like it. Yeah, I mean. I didn't even know they sold like short shorts. Like school uniforms for twenty some soundings, but you know whatever yeah feel like. He was modeled after. After the guy in peewee Herman Francis Yup. On lines. Yeah I can see. They come from the same family the. Warden character who they they address is the has to be the very best Kung Fu. He's the toughest guy in the prison in addition to being in charge. A and he, also he, he has a big bald spot, but when you look at it. It's very clearly shave. Like A very clear choice that this guy is supposed to look like this. And I don't know. Maybe it's to match the warden from the comics. Maybe it's to match a stereotypical like asshole character a-. But it's. It's such a choice. Yeah, it's like what Johnny. Depp did when he played. Hunter S. Thompson. If you're looking for a visual as a listener, he shaved his head in the form of male pattern baldness. which that would be a wacky thing to do during the quarantine I? Think that'd be fun. Want give it a spin. I was kind of hoping that. When we started the skull, you'd come on and. It'd be so great. A. Favourite part of this is win every time something huge happens like he punches like there's another fight any disembowel, somebody, or literally punches up through under someone's Chen and back out the mouth and rips out the jaw. The cards will come in. And just be like. Hey, you. You're coming with me. I mean they do all the prison? Guards are the like laziest shittiest jerks that were also like they are barely surprised by any of the horrible things they see. They all take bribes. They're all monsters. And so yeah when they like put on, and then later on, they're trying to break up a riot and they put on the like silliest. Shoulder pads and everything. and like like cheap plastic equipment that ricky just punches right through yeah! Yeah I mean this is. This is the worst prison, and it's like the hatred and vitriol for this system is like dripping off the screen and I feel like it. I don't know like. Watching. This movie tonight I'm like I really need to see somebody. Go and punch through a shitty unjust. Justice system. Yeah no kidding. We could use that right now. Let's talk about the fight with Oscar in the prison yard. This is one of the best ones where ricky is. Cut through the forearm very deeply and you think he's done for because he can't punch, but he and. He gets ground up glass thrown in his eyeballs. So he's which came out of which can't did did that. Come out of the eyeball of the assistant warden or now I? Believe the ground of glass was in the Sheaf of. The. Assistant Warden gave to Oscar. Okay, all right that makes more sense. That's why I was getting confused with immense in the eyeball. and and at this point. Oscar is fighting with his shirt off, so you can see his his tattoos. One of the one of the other inmates says once you've seen those tattoos. You're dead. He doesn't show off his tattoos and less. He's going to kill you. That's right and he's super buff. All the guys in here super buff generally and. Ricky, it looks like he ties his own tendon. Together. And he'll. Teeth! After anti washes the glass out of his eyeballs using busted water pipe. That was a pretty sweet. Actually I forgot about that. Breaks his elbow and that, and then as soon as he's tidiest ends back together. He is one hundred percent fine and. Proceeds to dismantle his opponent completely. Yeah, that's also tries to save his life. That's right. That's when he disembowelled the guy. And he runs over, and the guy literally pulls. Oscar pulls out his own guts and tries to choke ricky out with them. Yup. Does? Work big thing. I admire spirit. I think I don't I. Don't know which. which translation saw did the assistant warden praise? Oscar, for guts, yes. Oscar you've got a lot of guts. Those are pretty great joke. Then we get Oscars Godson. WHO's we learn? His tongue has been cut out. And the way he goes is his face is ripped off. And he gets punished for what citing with ricky by like learning how to because Ricky I don't know if we have mentioned this rookie in addition to his battling abilities. He his martial arts technique involves breathing force. He went to music school to study the flute. That's right. So, he and Oscars what Godson Yeah. They bonded over a mutual love of the flute. They. Do and Oscars Godson as as a pretty interesting character, he like I said he ends up getting his face ripped off. which is I had a hard time kind of choosing between the best kill. You have one. Well. I mean the I think one of the one of the best ones when Tarzan claps his hands together on the guy's head and it explodes. I think that was a clip that was using the daily show. Right query famous I hear. I don't know the assistant warden getting shot with a gun meant to kill elephants and blowing up, and then exploding was pretty good like Koto in live and let die. or a man I don't know there's so many good ones. When he when he punches. What's his name. The giant guy. Silly Long I. Think was the translation I had. The gang of four. No I'm talking about the giant naked guy that attacks him in the showers. Is the when he punches his guts out pretty gross. So, it's tough I don't make me choose AH. Choosing between my children? At one point, the which is also a great just the profit movie The award, and has a heart attack, and they bring out three jars of voter clearly like children's candies. Like hot tamales and things that are subbing for these giant bills, so he's able to cure his heart attack with those candies, which is very great. Yeah I mean he's. He's trying to keep the beast within him still within him. You know he's trying to keep it under control. Which later on the movie he allows that beast out to terrify revolts. Yeah I think. There's a lot to. Love about the kills, but I think my favorite sequence. Was the cell fight with the giant when he goes under the Chan in through the mouth and rips face off and then when their fist. Any punches. That guy's hand off. Your pretty great. It's really gross. and. He's and he survives this he is. He almost survives his encounter with ricky only to to be smashed by that compactor that was started by the warden or the assistant worn, but again ricky tries to save him. Ricky always tries to save him. He gives everyone a chance. And like I said there are some story here. We do learn that. Ricky has lost his girlfriend true love. That what was it at the hands of a drug dealer? Yeah I, think she gets. She wakes up in a in a drug den and she witnesses them. Like doing a drug deal or something, and she freaks out and runs through an apartment building, and they chase her to the roof, and she runs off the top of the roof. Super Dave Osborne. Like Super Dave Osborne. Is yet another great special effects. Moment is throw a dummy off the roof throat meal. Well, but that revenge is great, and that's where we learned about the five bullets story kind of comes around full full circle at that point. You know teases it early I mean that's storytelling you tends early on. Because people were going to spend the rest of the movie wondering. How do you get those five bullets? By the time that you get to it, you already love the character and you. And you're like highly get so strong. Of course. His uncle throws gravestones adamant a cemetery any punches and kicks them. With his chest and head. Yeah, that was great I. Mean I think every know enough about martial arts and Kung Fu films that you have to have a great flashback to a training seen Oh. Yeah, and this is one of the great ones in the graveyard. It's it's pretty spectacular. Yeah Yeah so the movie doles out information. It's not. It's not a straightforward story like you'd expect. Every time. It's so funny. 'cause there's never there's not like a continuity of consequences. There's a big fight in the the guards. Come in, get ricky. But then he's just sort of in Gen pop again somehow. There's never like a solitary or anything like that, and they keep having various like they try to bury them in concrete. They put him in this spiderweb like rebar cage and It's so funny when I was watching stuff, his mouth full of razor blades, and who literally while they're doing that I was like dude. He is going to spit those back into your. And that's exactly what happens. And and taking all these injuries. He heals very quickly. You do not see evidence of his his various stabbings the next scene. No? No, not at all. It is it is kind of interesting at first it, so I think it brings up. One of the one of the interesting things about this movie is because. Everyone tries to stop or kill Ricky and then they try and get him to join them, and then they try and stop or kill Ricky again, and none of these are very successful obviously, but it also makes me wonder. How he got arrested in the first place. I mean maybe maybe had faith in the system or maybe deep down, he was like. The roots of this corruption have to go all the way to corrupt prison system so I am going to allow myself to be. So I can go to this prison. Clean it up. Burn the poppy fields that are hidden inside the prison and defeat the warden, but who knows I. Don't maybe doesn't have that much forethought. Yeah, that's true you do see. He got there. You see the back story of his girlfriend why he is a damaged man but Yeah, that's interesting. Maybe maybe his faith from the system had not been eroded yet, and luckily he is become by the end of the movie is become radicalized like many of us at this point. I think we figured it out. Although now that I'm looking at my list about favorite kills when he knocks the top half of that guy's head off. That's pretty great. That is very great i. got that one saved on my phone. I feel like I have. This movie and critters to I have a lot of I. Don't know which one is more gifts saved on my phone. Well I mentioned the gang of four those of the. Sort of the head of each of the gangs, which they spell out very plainly at the beginning with an Air Asian but the three. The gang of three becomes are very. Interesting to say the least Yeah Yeh. Tarzan was a giant with giant pompadour and wears a lot of for yeah, and he's like the strong man. In my translation, you have a character. God who throws needles with wires attach them at people and has great hairstyle. He has a very great hair style, and then you have. One HSWAN. Which I I'm sure I'm mispronouncing who? I is at least at least gender neutral, if not come what somewhat fem. I thought it was a lady for a little while. You can't quite tell and. Address it. In what is otherwise very much men's prison? And she he. They seem to be the most accomplished martial artist of the group right and the other interesting thing about this prison as though there are guards everywhere. There's never like I said. There's no consequences and there's never any rhyme or reason. To Win who is where at any given point? No I mean. Maybe it's because I'm I. Haven't spent much time in. Ristic interest Chinese president. Maybe I'd they all kind of looks like like a school or like times or like an office building like the the Assistant Warren's office very much looks like a last minute thrown together office. Yeah you know. They clearly didn't have a bunch of sets because they. They shoot several scenes in that sort of nondescript staircase area. Oh Yeah. And they get they get the most out of that area like they use those stairs for fights. Throw people down the stairs. Ricky gets covered in cement and then. Falls down their stairs. That's a great part is when the Ricky is covered in cement any slowly advancing on the warden, and then he all of a sudden, just stops and falls down the stairs, and they're like talking about how the you know He. He can't move because of all the cement, but I mean it looks really wet. It does and he also breaks out of it with his ABS of steel. He apps up in the cement. Just brakes just cracks apart, which is wonderful. which I think might be i. mean it's just more evidence that ricky is simply trying to let the let his opponents reveal their hand, so he can. So they can make their play and expose themselves, so he can defeat them. That's right in the movie culminates in in a great bike kind of final ten minute sequence where the warden who like you said earlier is supposedly the best fighter. He sort of doesn't incredible hulk thing. where he turns into this giant, well this giant Hulk like creature somehow and then they have a great fight in. He gets punched through all the way through the mid section and again he still going at it, but a. don't you tell everyone how he finally dies? It's pretty wonderful. So this the warden goes through a transformation. That's not unlike. Like not unlike a mighty morphin power rangers, monster moment where it goes from like a normal little guy, who a bigger guy and I was very tough. And Ricky of course. Fights him picks them up and sticks him in an industrial meat chopper. Yeah, that. Introduced to earlier, so you have to leave it, so it's realized so he's slowly pushes the word and into this chopper while being covered in blood, yeah! The the story is that they used so much fake blood that the actor skin had been stained red for days. And so he slowly pushes the warden into this meat chopper. And Saving the day, because immediately afterwards, he goes out into the prison grounds, but The punches a hole in the prison walls. That's all everybody escapes. That's right. He punches a hole in the prison. Like that's the only way this movie could end I. Think is punching a hole and it's not you know. He doesn't punch a human sized hole in the prison. He plunges a A. You know a very large like he could drive a semi truck through this whole. It's almost like he needed to go through all these stages so that he could power himself up enough to punch a hole through that wall, because otherwise one might argue. If? I'm sure like when Neil. degrasse Tyson reviews this movie. He's like it doesn't make sense punched a hole through the wall. Right at the start. A. Man It's so great. I mean thanks for turning the on to this movie in this genre. I had so much fun watching it, and I'm definitely going to explore more stuff like this, but it's I. Dunno, it's. It might be hard to start at like visine. And then go backwards. Yeah, have you had? Have you had experiences with that sort of thing before like when you've entered or experienced? Like the highest moment of genre or style, only to be disappointed by other stuff. Yeah I. Don't know if I can think of. Mike for Instance for me when I first started watching. Japanese animation. To movies I watched were Akira and then. And then like Ninja Scroll and I was very disappointed by a lot of things for a while. Before, you know finding finding like basically being reintroduced to. The Studio Ghibli stuff. I think the only thing I can think of is when I was. Twelve years old my now brother-in-law then. My sister's boyfriend sat me down seven years older than me. Made me listen to Leonard Skinner. Debut Album introduced me to southern rock, and I'm still a Leonard Skinner Fan. But after that I was like must've southern rock is not so great. A BIT! Yeah it's. It's really tough like the. Yeah I feel like sometimes like crossover elements of different like I'm I listened to a lot of heavy metal music, and sometimes the stuff that has enough crossover appeal like the more extreme stuff that has a crossover appeal with me I'm like Oh. Let me check out things like this. Oh No, I shouldn't have done. So, did we're GONNA finish with five questions is something I haven't done in a long time, but I'm going to bring it back for you. Did Prep you for this so? If you need a second to think of your answers don't feel bad. I question. What's the first movie you remember seeing in the theater? ghostbusters okay. How old are you? I am forty. Okay. And I saw ghostbusters, and my mom covered my eyes during the first ghost scare because it was. She said it was too scary for me, but when I asked she said He. Goes, look like skeletal or For those of you listening at home by the way when Stewart said that he was forty, you kind of shrugged a little bit. As if say like is at a good age. Because I was like Oh, man I better do some math so. What is the first are rated movie? You saw theater or home or wherever? Was it not worthy. I mean that's that's tough to say. I feel like the the one that I remember the most was like. It was either robocop or Predator. robocup! That's great. I R rated film. Mine was escape from new. York by the way. Wow, that's a good one. Yeah, that was a good one. Number three well, this is interesting number three for you. Is A I'm not sure how you're GonNa answer this because you do a bad movie podcast, but the question is. Do you walk out of a bad movie? I have never walked out of a bad movie. Yeah I. I'm trying to think the I think. The closest I came was man of steel I took a lot of extra long bathroom breaks during that one. But. We were there for my my father-in-law's birthday. He likes dinner and a movie for his birthday, so any any like superheroes in the absence of a movie featuring Wolverine, he will just watch any superhero movie and you like sitting in the lobby. Well man steals on and scroll into your twitter. Arguably more effective use my. Number four I usually tailored to the guest, so I'm going to say you know you've seen a lot of bad movies because of. The Flop House which one is the worst one that you can think of? Because you guys have a rating system where it's A. Bad bad movie, a good bad movie your movie Kinda like. Which one is just really sort of reprehensible and just pure trash. I mean. There's a lot of them them. I mean the. It's really tough because you know, we watch a lot of them, and there's you have the passion projects that are from like misguided maniacs, right and I. For the most part I don't want to single abuse. Any of these guys and those are bad, but they're like dumb. The. They're so incompetent that there's you can kind of laugh at them. But then you get like the big studio ones where you're like. They're just so boring because anything that would have been interesting about. Them has been like Iran to out, right? That's more offensive. Yeah, the ones the ones that have been bumming me out the most lately things like the most recent Rambo, which is Rambo last blood, which is just like super racist and Shitty yeah and falls back on the laziest shitty like tropes. Listen to that episode. Actually I haven't seen the movie, but now listen to it. Do not or like the death. Wish remake is pretty bad, right or Oh and then or we did the we watched that movie. The haunting of Sharon Tate Midge, Melissa, on which which posits. Reality where? they approach the share tate murder as like a ghost story, and it's just it's horrible. All right, fair enough, and then finally question five moviegoing one back when theatres were opened in once they reopened. What is your ritual? Where do you sit? Where do you go? What do you get at the concession stand? Yeah I mean. I'm not I'm not super proud to admit, but my my movie. My moviegoing place of choice is the Brooklyn Alamo Draft House I. Love I love the programmer there i. don't agree with a lot of the policies and they controversial. Yeah, there's. The they haven't been. I mean I'm obviously. I'm open to be corrected, but from my understanding, they have been particularly good to their staff. During this situation, Gotcha and also. Tim. League had some issues with not supporting. Claims of. Abuse against his employees so basically a bunch of bunch of things that aren't cool what? The. There's I. Love the way they do their business. I try to frequent other places that are similar, but I like I'm a huge fan of places where I can pick my seat. I like having a lot of room. I sit. Guess toward the middle. Although no, actually that's a lie I. Try and sit near the Edge because I got to pee. Because I also like to drink beers when I go to movies area, and preferably it'll be a place that serves. Right. So and I do I. Do go to a fair amount of movies by myself. Same here. Especially in the afternoon, like an afternoon movie by myself this thing in the world. Such a treat. If you're in I, don't know what the new world is going to be like, but if you're in New York the. Battery Park Movie Theater. In during the day during the week is the best best matinee spot in the world. Nobody's there big theater. Yeah.

Ep. 191 - Living in Concert with the Mind with Meditation Teacher Light Watkins

"It's not like you're walking around. There's just as one voice that saying do this or don't do that, you know, that voice. It's there. But then there could also be one hundred other voices from ego from your conscious mind from greed from all these other places, and so all of those voices are kind of competing with each other. And what I found is that that's one of the reasons why the practice of meditation is so essential. You're listening to the almost thirty podcasts a lifestyle podcast hosted by Christa Williams and Lindsay Simsek. Tune in for new episode every Tuesday to hear honest conversations about topics like wellness. Entrepreneurship spirituality and self development with guests who are really smart, really inspirational and really fucking funny.

There's no way isn't that? What you know me? Well, you. Yeah. What this is would not be without the other. Yes. You know, it would become something else. Shrew who'd become a porn channel. Yeah. I turned to my voice. But sometimes it makes me uncomfortable. Do you ever use voice? Yeah. In the bed. You do. We're just recording. Our new intro. They very interesting. It's amazing. It's great interest. It's a great intro. But it's crazy when you say things over and over at and you friend. Oh, yeah. Here we go. So at the end of it. We're like, hey, you know, you don't know what to say. Like, honestly, you're like, okay. This is the pie the magic carpet saddle up. Like what the fuck can you say? So we say here we go 'cause truly here we go. And so would you like why was I was like? I was like you. You're like it will the one year like. It was like it was like just like is it here we go. Yeah. Talking to my dog. Really take a piss. I don't know what's going to happen. Here. We go. So much on. No, it was it was it was like, good luck. Go the subtext of every us when we do our intro. It's like it's so crazy because like every time it's just unique. Like, I'm like unique your tuning into the earth or what I say like, you're listening. Yeah. So I'm like, you're listening to the almost thirty podcasts. And sometimes I'm like, you're listening to the almost thirty podcasts. I'm like, you're listening to the almost thirty podcast every time. It's an it's really hard to like get every cadence, right? Get every drop inflection weird. And because you could say at one way with us certain inflection pattern and then with the different inflection pattern. It means because something completely different Mike. Wait what? Yes, it's it's it's interesting real most need like a third person in the room. I know to like tell us tell us, but I think it turned out great. So just every time y'all now. So fuck. Yeah. Like new intro. We had to change because we said that our podcast came out every Tuesday and Tuesday Thursday. But now, we just don't say it. But now, we just don't say. Yeah, we don't see it comes out because we don't know we might drop one on you on a Sunday morning. 'cause here we go. We go. And then we just got off of our ambassador call. Oh, man. We're doing an ambassador program. It's basically like an MLM. So there's a bunch of little groups don't even say to be a part of it. I'm just kidding. It's a pair. Me reiterate, it's not an LM list. Kidding? It's out on them. All no one pays literally. Our group was bought burst open because the talk of melon. Oh shit. Yeah. You know? No. But it's it's actually the craziest. So cool. The coolest thing we have embassador is about forty of them thus far all over the country. And in London the world, who are Australia Bhaskar where you. Yeah. I think. Yeah. Where are you at? But I. I think they reached out and they're in the process of late. They should be. Yeah. Where are you pretty vocal? I know. That's just weird is we have a lot of Australian-based listeners. So I don't know where you I can't wait to come to Australia, and my Australian accent will turn on just automatically end. It'll be so bad, and they'll tell me exactly how bad it is Justice really bad at it. Gold. It's going to be meeting. So the master program is basically so that we empower the people in our community at host events in their cities. Yeah. And it could look like anything he meet up three people at a coffee shop or it could be fifty people at a workout in the park yet. Really? Yeah. Be whatever you want. Well. Whatever this is not like a cult weird thing. Not whatever we branded ourselves physique. Nope. But we're just so excited because you know, we through the tour have just been able to see the power of coming together and community will no matter what it looks like it is power full. So we're just I mean witnessing this and in all, and we just get on the call with the ambassadors, and they already have, you know, branches planned, and volunteer events planned, and like a little pizza parties planned, and it's really nice because there was also there was a girl that reached out to our Email and oh shoes from Ohio. I don't have my phone in front of me. But she's from Middletown Ohio, and she was to me because she's like you're from Ohio, you know, where I'm from. And there's not a lot of people in my area that I can connect with on the topics that you guys connect with on the podcast, which I can completely understand I've been there. So she didn't know that we had you know, almost thirty. Chapter that she could dry. So now, she's part of the almost thirty Ohio chapter, and it gives her the opportunity to connect with women that are interested in personal growth development, spirituality, everything that we are about, you know, she's now a part of a community of women that are are like her, and she didn't know we're in Ohio or or near her. So that's really the point of it. And that's been you know, the best and most beautiful part of everything. Yes. So you can search for the subgroups through our secret almost thirty Facebook group. And if you don't see your city there need like to start a subgroup and become an ambassador, you can Email community at almost thirty podcast dot com. We will be launching our almost thirty nation Instagram soon. So you better like it when we follow or follow it. That's what I meant. Like that. They're going to like it. You guys are going to get in the for the almost thirty nation Instagram. It's like an opportunity for the ambassadors and the people in our community to really connect with one another and to be showcased and to share their business, or you know, share what they're doing in their community. So it's really just a place for you guys to highlight one another truly truly madly deeply the best hose. Everything good. It's okay. He was a little bit of a roller coaster. Feeding like asked today I've been I haven't been able to sleep lately too. And I'm taking Benadryl. Every night. What what is the fireplace? Not being able to sleep feel like is. I just feel like I've. So much energy. And I can't and it drives me crazy. I haven't been able to sleep which is usually like me usually can sleep. Very well. Maybe it's I mean, it's probably not it. But it's. It's like the this month this next month. It's just a lot of like just kind of hyping up for this year ahead. I don't know. Now, usually I'm so physically tired though, which is weird is like at the end of the day. Sometimes it's hard to turn off my brain. But usually, I'm so physically tired that I pass out. But I haven't been physically tired in a long time, and I've been working out less than normal. I guess, but like still I've been working out. So I don't know what it is. I probably may be having caffeine more than normal that could be if you're sensitive to it. And I guess I guess I think that's what it is to be completely honest. But taking Benadryl sees here. Asleep? Real good not Benadryl. But Google melatonin too. Like, Tony doesn't keep me asleep. Oh, really? Yeah. I wake up I wake up every night in the middle of the night now to every night yet. Oh about their Justin woke up in the Bill night woke me up. We both Pete. No, let me get in bed. Hold hands to play like, sports and stuff. But like you don't have a sword. But you have like with my fingers orders things. Exactly. That's what I usually. I walk up to his rack is dick as four AM, and I'm walk up to sword. I know it's weird. I don't know. I don't like that. I haven't been sleeping and then today this morning was just I don't know. I was in a little funky phone just whenever I get your tax guy. I basically spiral truly honestly it's like it has four bullets in an excel document attached to it, and I'm actually on the floor. It's. Yes. I see more than four numbers. And I'm like, I'm out of here. This is really hard for me. But also, it's about a bunch of frigging information from January twenty eighteen I don't know shit about Ackley in like, we, you know, for anyone who's started a business to I'm sure you can understand like in the beginning. You're not thinking about all of the things that you should be thinking about when like tax season rolls along, you know. So it's yeah. It's a it's a lot about playing catch up now and just making sure everything is right and tight sit up moving forward. You know, we're we're good to go. But yeah, that's really fucking stressful in your very good of imaging it, not really but Brock Branca's, the smart. Just like, it's hard. We don't know. We're like one. I don't want know. Yeah. I don't wanna know. And I don't wanna know. So just so do I need to have him do my personal taxes to next year. Yep. You're going to have up someone. I mean, I ha-. Yeah. I have someone. One who is familiar with kind of the type of things that like stripping the stripping and like working the corner. Yeah. So you seem to make sure about sandals usury handles. No. But actually, I didn't have as many of those types of jobs, meaning like acting, whatever whatever. So. Yeah. Maybe I'll use Brock. But I also think to the types of emails that you've been going through. It's the first it's the first month back, you know, people are fucking aggressive when they're back. Yeah. People are back in their fucking. Yeah. We are. We are aggressive to. I'm sure not playing around and analysis planner, and I really didn't expect it. I'm like, oh, wow. Like y'all are not here to play and being real honest this year. Yes. I like that you're being a good needs have being very honest. But these are also being very tested. And and I'm like, oh, do you. Do you want to be honest? The time. Do you? Because here's some media test. -tunities for you to be very honest. Yes. Or are you going to do it or not for me to the honesty helps to create boundaries? I guess too. You know, like had a had an situation the other day where someone express their feelings for me. And I was really honest in my feelings back, and it just it. It's for me. It felt immediately. Like, I had created a really clear boundary. You know, and before it was like a little weird and fuzzy an, but it felt really good. I'm like, okay. So I can do that more often. Whether it's someone like that or or in business or in with family, or whatever it is. It's just it's great. So yeah. I mean, I lie. I like I love that part of you. That's like, Nope. Bullshit not saying in our share. But also it's scary because I'm like am. I. I don't know. She. If it's a fine line too. Because I wanna be I wanna be a delight. But I think you can be an honest, delight your sure. Yeah. It's just an interesting. It's it's figuring out literally. The the words to use in order to express. It is probably the hardest part of think. But people respect it. Yeah. If it's done in the right way. Yeah. How do you guys feel about being is honesty, honest, best policy next time next time almost thirty? That was actually pretty funny on Chris is podcast when he was talking about like the NPR guy. He was first Navient PR guy. He's like as honesty the best policy. They always kinda answer answer with his imitations mazing. Yeah. So then I was walking in and I wondered. Is honesty the best policy? Oh, man. So today's episode is all about meditation meditation. We have light Watkins on the podcast to day. I heard light on ritual longtime ago he's been on ritual. Maybe more than once, not sure. But I heard him on ritual a wire lag-. Oh, I think it was before I move to LA or maybe shortly thereafter, and, you know, became interested in his work. And then attended a shine event that he runs a group called the shine. And they host sober events that are for conscious people, and it was an amazing awesome event that had sweet green salads. I went with Erica chemic-. There was great singers comedians all of these things, and it was really nice to be an environment where you know, everyone else there was really enlightened and really kind and there for the same things. Yeah. He's he's someone that people go to to start their medicine. Nation. Practice released a solid foundation. He has a new book bliss more how to succeed meditation without really trying really the nuts and bolts like how to and I think that people just get stuck in the beginning. Because they're not sure if it's quote, unquote, correct? Or if they're doing it the right way, or whatever. So late is a great gateway into this practice. Yeah. I've been I think he goes. No. But I've been meditating for. Two thousand nineteen now six years six years and meditation has completely changed my life as much as people say to completely change my life. It is the reason I am here today. It is the reason I am the person. I am today. It is the reason that I have the personality that I have today, and I'm so thankful for it. A new brought meditation really intimately. I mean. I knew about it. I've done it before. But. Everyone. Yeah. Yeah. But we're together a lot.

But then like everyone loves the Booker book is incredible instruments credible. She's awesome. And I know I she was on the shine page on the front edge said that her BMC was on the page. Two pictures. So funny little communicating for baby. Yeah. So we are snuggled up. My Lenny Kravitz scarf on trying to make happen like wearing one of these blanket. We're so happy you're here. Yeah. So happy here heard a lot of good things about you guys. Nice of you to say, it's all true true. All we've been a big fan of yours for a while now, and and miring you from afar, and we talk about it a lot, you know, Christa introduced me to meditation and just kind of got me on that path. And so our community has kind of not followed suit, but has been so Schori curious, which is that's all we ask with anything that we talk about. How did you? How did not shown by new? I'll answer that in a second. But a little bit. What what is your practice? Like what what are you guys do? Yeah. I I looked at her. And I was like you can. Do you know a lot of people feel like I should have some, you know, even just sitting and reading a magazine instrumentation like widow just curious mind, kind of changes feels like weekly? But like last week, I fell really good waking up. And that's the first thing. I do some weeks. It doesn't feel good to do that. My mind is kind of focused on something else and men all come back to it through movement. So I relate a lot to kind of just being in my body in that moving meditation really has had a positive effect on whether things -iety or just my mind running and. Yeah, I mean, I do think I'm alone a lot. I guess when you live alone, not alone a lot in Los Angeles. Yeah. It's kind of a lonely town. So when I'm doing things, I've just tried to be a little bit more mindful. Whether I'm cooking or I'm like, I was just. Sweeping out there before you know, just kind of being as present as possible because I'm not always present, you know. About you. Honey. I just I learned renovation probably eight years ago from someone, and I just have repeated I repeat the mantra I am until I can kind of get into it. And then once I'm into it. It's just focusing on the breath in and out. And then if I start to wander noticing that and then trying to bring it back to I am and mine's always sitting I can't really get into meditation laying. I don't really do like moving meditation because I can't really drop in in the way that I can when I'm sitting. And then if I am feeling like I really want to just kind of branch out. I'll do Tara brach tear Brock. Yeah. She's she's the best and soldier like tear, Brock fifteen twenty minute meditation inside timer thing her voices. Like, the only voice, and I haven't done one of your meditations, but I need to, but yours is really nice. And soothing, but hers is just. Very I love her voice sometimes in some of the apps. We call map is really great. But the voice is very very particular about it. Go. Yes. So I I I I got into meditation back in the nineteen nineties when I was dabbling in yoga, I was living in New York City. I was modeling was in the fashion industry, and which required a lot of time spent in the gym and one night. I remember doing shoulder precious presses up in the there was this gym up on the Upper West side of New York familiar with New York me, let seventy six in Amsterdam. What was it called? It was just little gym called equinoxes. All the models. Only had two locations really the nineteenth street location. And there was the seventy six eight location. Yeah. So the nineteenth street was like the cool hip. Okay. And the seventy six tree was like the kind of family location. Exactly. And it was started by these brothers. And anyways, you had no idea it's going to be come this huge behemoths of Jim, but it was nice back in those days. And so I was going to economics because I was living in that area. And and I remember one night these really attractive women kinda like you guys. Glowing healthy. Cowing? What else they're standing there? Again, standing there barefoot with these little rolled up mat snug, and this is in the mid nineteen ninety. So there wasn't like a yoga scene. There certainly wasn't a meditation scene. And and I just got curious while I was doing shoulder presses about what were they were going because everyone just looked so healthy. And I I kind of wondered in there and found myself in my first yoga class, and and it was a horrible experience. Because I was very very stiff up always been very Steph could barely touch my toes and the teacher. I was the only guy in the class and the teacher who's woman for some reason gave me all this attention. And I just of so embarrassed because you know, she was trying to contorts my body into these different positions than like bounce back like a thick rubber band. But it was also I was hooked. I kept going back. I just figured that was the teacher for me, and they had other teachers tried other teachers, and they had these real like classically trained yoga teachers because there weren't a lot of yoga studios back then. So everyone was talking about meditation and all these different books and eastern philosophy. And there was no music. There was no like hip hop music or anything like that like you here today. And so I started forging these relationships with my yoga teachers who invite me to their apartments with mother yoga students, and we'd sit down on the floor, and we'd meditate and and that's kind of how I got introduced to meditation. And then you read the books I was obsessed with conversations with God and the cell stained prophecy, and, you know, those kinds of new age modern eastern philosophy books and everybody may references to. Tation or Somali and vonda. And and so I was just curious like what this day. I knew there had to be something to it because everyone was talking about it. But my own personal experience was just basically me sitting there staring at the back of my eyelids. So I didn't know if there was something wrong with me or my mind, or if there was something wrong with the approach, but I just kept dabbling dabbling dabbling. And then and then Finally I ended up moving to Los Angeles few years later, and and then I met meditation teacher who gave me a mantra and taught me how to use it. And that's where I started really enjoying the practice of meditation, and then ultimately became trained by my teacher to become a teacher myself. How'd you get from Alabama? Right. Yes. So I grew up in Alabama. And then I left there after I graduated from high school, and I went to DC to college. And then when I graduated from. Mm there. I'm moved to Chicago and started working in advertising for few months that was my only real job. And it was a great job. It was like a dream job is in the creative department of junior art director, but I kind of looked around and saw the people who had been there, the longest even in the creative department, and I don't know people didn't really seem all that happy. And I I felt like advertising is always going to be here. And I can always come back and do this. I wanted to. But since I'm feeling young and free. Why not just go out and explore and follow my heart. Again, this is like in the nineties. So there wasn't a whole lot of emphasis placed on working in your passion. And following your purpose and all of that. But for some reason, I was able to kind of tap into that and and follow through on it. And so. Yeah. Discovered for modeling or what was that? Like, no, I didn't I didn't know how to work. About that. I I I kind of discovered myself. You can get paid. For what had happened was. I did a couple of amateur fashion shows in college. So I didn't really understand that that was amateur compared to what real modeling was. I just figured while. Somebody wanted me thought I was good looking enough good fashion show in college. So maybe that means I can be supermodel. And I started going around to open calls the castings when I was living in Chicago. And I had some pictures that were shot by this fine arts Taga for. Naked. But whatever. Oh, people looked at it. Like, nah. Thank you so much, and and I got turned down by everybody. So, but again, you know, when you're young and you're naive like that. You don't think you don't think it's you you think it's them. So I met this photographer who is a fashion photographer, and she said, I'll take some pictures of you. And so I got my pictures, redone. And then I went back and got rejected by everyone again with my new pictures except for the last agency, I went to go see. So for those of you who don't know, you know, with modeling you have an agents, you have an agent in different markets. So if you're in Chicago, you'll have a Chicago agent, and you also may have New York agent and a London agent and Paris agent in Miami agent like that so, but one of the person who you initially sign with sign is an air quotes because you're not actually signing anything if if you're discovering yourself if they discover you then they may sign you if they're gearing. teeing, you certain amount of money, or whatever or contracts, so. I've I was taken in by this agency in Chicago elite elite, and and they became my mother agency. And and then they started sending me to other places. So I went to Miami and went to Paris and went to Milan, I went to I mentally ended up in New York and stayed in New York for seven years. Wow. But I was never like supermodel of my imagination. I was working part time as leader eventually after a couple of years, I started making enough money modeling to support myself. But then this starts to the client a few years after that. And that's why I retired and moved to Los Angeles to follow my dreams of becoming a yoga teacher two thousand and two. So just in terms of lake where your curiosity stems from because I do find it rare. That men are curious about the things that you've been curious about are so open. Do you know lady from Alabama, Alabama, which athlete? No. I wasn't an athlete you feel like you're nothing. You're actually never really worked out or anything or played sports. Out and stuff. Interesting. I was these are really good questions. There's no one's ever asked me this before get ready. It's going to be a lot. So what one morning this is the most random thing what I really love my advertising job for the one that I have three months. And and that summer in Chicago is one of the hottest summers on record. So am I parliament in Hyde Park didn't have any air conditioning? So I literally wake up at two or three in the morning put my head in the freezer for a little while just to cool off people were literally would dying that summer in Chicago. So anyways, I. Started going to work at like six o'clock in the morning, just because it was air conditioned, and I also enjoyed it. But, you know, just because it was nice to be there on my own. And all that. So I remember going there one morning really really early and the door was locked and couldn't get in. So I thought well, let me just go kind of explore. This is down on Michigan avenue in downtown Chicago. So I'm just kind of walking, and I go around the corner and see this I go into this building. And I see this sign for this place called Bally's and know what valleys was curves. Right downstairs and next thing. I know him in Bally's health. Lattes? People are in there working out. And I never really even been in a gym before. Like, I said it never literally had done. Was it weird over you? Like, I want to do that. It was weird. And I wanted to do that. Yeah. So I kind of signed up. A thing. And I thought you know, what this'll be a great way to get out of the heat. And it'll be give me something to do before. I go to work every day. Why not? And I went in there. And I started literally everyday I would go in there, and workout. So that's how I started getting introduced to physical fitness is through not being able to get into my office one morning, and it was being really hot outside of crazy. I feel like yeah. Just kind of float from like or at least. Now, you're you're. Very curious person. But don't you feel and I'm sure you've met people and have probably helped people through. But when things are things pop up where they're challenging like no air conditioning, or whatever it is. They usually just either run the other way or there's a lot of resistance to it. And it's like this fighter flight. So what about perhaps even before college? Like, your upbringing created that within you what I think honestly, I can remember always feeling that way being curious now have to give credit to my family. They've been they've been very supportive. They never had an agenda for me in my life. You know, you should do this. You should do that. They had the idea to go to college. Because you know, that's just what people did I never really been thought about that. But as far as you know, putting myself in the situations where I could explore things kind of always done that at. Started with you know, I remember doing this the safety patrol as a kid, you know, in in elementary school. So literally when I'm six seven years old. You know, those little bit guys who are out with the flags helping. Strip blocks. Stop the traffic and trust is true being mentored by one. I don't know. I was fascinated. No hope to. There were like ranks you could become a Lieutenant. Get a uniform that you had to wear. You know, how sometimes parent they they have to like drag their kids out of bits force them to go to school today in barter and negotiate. I was the opposite. I would wake up super early. And I was like I couldn't wait to go to school would have to be there like six six thirty to do the safety patrol and have my little uniform on earned and everything in my whole family would be sleep. Just get up make my cereal and then won't. Read the paper. So I've been doing that. And then when I was a soon as I turned thirteen I went down to the barber shop, and and ask the barber owned the owner of the shop by could sweep up hair, and you know, as a as a job because I just I just couldn't wait to work, and then I just start. So I started working very early like that. I just I don't know. I was just I would just go out and do that kind of stuff. I remember one one time Ricky, my mom out because I decided I was going to I was grew up in Montgomery, Alabama, which is kind of a small town, but still big enough to get into some trouble, you know, and I just left my house one day and just went for a little walk around the corner in the next thing. I know I walked five miles to the local mall. There's no cellphones. There's no pages. Nothing. So I was just out walking. Then I call my mom from a payphone from the mall, and she like freaked out a you even get there and. A little stuff like that. I would just I don't know. Do it gave me time to think or just seeing if I could do. Thinking. Patrol. It's been hard week. Changing. Guys know, I always say it collagen is one of my favorite things in my beauty routine. So I was skeptical at first to drink my collagen with dirty lemon. But after I've, you know, been drinking for about a week, maybe even longer I noticed a difference in my skin, my hair, and my nails. So I have been a lover of dirty lemon for quite some time.

And it is such a great way to get collagen or ginseng or even just lemon, which has micro by microbial properties in it, and is really really good for detox. The I'm loving the charcoal.

Are just you know, growing up in Alabama. You just man, it's it's there's not a lot happening down there. You just want to get away. That's all I thought about growing up with how bored out of my mind was how much I just wanted to get away to a big city. I wanted to all the big cities. I wanted to see the world travel. Yeah. In DC seem like a really nice nice place to be international city, lots going on. And it seemed like huge when I went to DC to visit on my God. It's all every this lights. I never been in New York or L air evac stuff that was the biggest ever been to. So I was hoped when I first got there. And I also knew I recognized that that was probably the first. Time that I actually had experience of being somewhere or doing something and feeling something that resonated with it. And then once I had that resonance I just kind of knew. Okay. This is it and then it was decided, you know. Just that kind of you feel like you're in sync with the flow of that place. And and I felt the same thing when I moved to New York when I moved to LA when I got into meditation when I came yoga teacher all of those different when I quit my job. When I got my job my my advertising job, you know, it became a pattern. And then when I was twenty nine, you know, how they say when you go into your Saturn return, you're like twenty eight twenty nine that's where I made the conscious choice. I said, okay. Enough of this kind of you know, fucking around. I'm going to start following this thing relentlessly like on Ivan on a question in anymore. Whatever it says, I don't care because when I looked back. I saw that it never led me a stray even though in the moment. It felt like, you know, maybe it was smoking something the voice, but when you all when you look back you see that. Oh, actually it was. I was it was directing me right where I was supposed to go. And and that's where things really got interesting because bindis in this never even a question to not not do it. It was a matter of do it or not it was how soon can I built the courage to take this leap because I knew it was going to have to happen at some point. Was there a time where you didn't follow it. Yes. There was. Yeah. When I was in around two six I lost the love of my life. That's a whole other. T- whole. St. actually grown two thousand and six I had gotten involved in this. This investment currency exchange investment, which on paper looked like a really good thing. You know, really great returns all of that. And so I made a lot of money very quickly. And then I decided okay everyone's like flipping houses in LA. So let me get a little bit of that action. Little piece of that action. And I took the money from the investment, and I purchased about I took like twenty thousand dollars, which is what I made the investment and I purchased two million dollars of real estate in. This is back when they were given. Exactly, I was yoga teacher making about nine hundred dollars week. No a month at the time and wasn't a month. No, I was making about nine hundred dollars a week. Okay. Yeah. And. At ain't bad. No, not bad at all for yoga yoga. Yeah. And. So. Yeah. Two million dollars though. It's not too many dollar property. If anything goes wrong enough, you know type of money didn't have any like savings, and you know, for a rainy day or anything like that. So anyways, when I was signing that paperwork for the properties. Something told me, you know, may not you may want to reconsider this. But at the same time, I was just curious about the whole thing. And you know, I'd never really been in debt before that. And I was up to mystic but looking back in hindsight, I think I was probably more greedy than I was Optimus tick. And I was thinking, okay. Can't wait to prove that I'm this kind of financial wizard, and of course in two thousand seven the market bursts. Everybody lost their shirt allows my shirt, and my pants and was really close to filing for bankruptcy and ended up. Just clawing my way out of that whole thing, but you know, at the same time, I learned a lot of things and that process, and and I was able actually able to become a meditation teacher because because I had these properties one of the things that you you you got in the mail where other cash advance offers because you are property owner so banks which is sin you tens of thousands of dollars zero percent interest. I eighteen months or twelve months that you could do whatever you wanted to with you could pay off other balances and transfer other money into other accounts. And so it was because I got one of those offers that I was able to afford to go away to India and stay away for a few months and learn how to become a meditation teacher. So there was still some some good that came out of that, you know, but and also fortunately, I was single I didn't have a family or kids or anything like that. So even though it had that loss at it didn't affect any. What else except for myself? Very true. Yes. How did it change your meditation practice or even just, you know? Being awesome. I think it just it reminded me that happiness is not out and the and the external circumstances, you know, so when you see that you have the peaks and the valleys, and that was a valley moment for me by Nansha Lee. And and circumstantially I found that you know, I've been meditating for about seven years consistently at that point. And I found that it didn't really affect me as much as I thought it was going to affect me. You know, once I made the decision that. Okay. I'm just gonna I'm gonna do the best. I can to get out of it. And and it was actually turned out to be a positive thing too. Because. The properties that I purchase weren't. They weren't like high end properties. And I was starting to get these calls from people I got attacked coming into the building. You know, the police are here up LA and just realize no amount of money is worth my peace of mind. You know, and add rather just kind of white my hands clean of this situation. Then be sitting around feeling like, I'm captive to whatever is or isn't going on in these properties. So yeah, that that's that was probably the last decision I made for money. And then after that, I was like, okay. All the decisions, I make all the people that I work with are going to people actually like and the gonna be decisions based on creating and and feeling inspired. Like, I want to do things that are inspiring not things just for money that I don't because I never had a passionate about being a real estate mogul or even a property manager. Like, I knew that wasn't passionate about that. So it's funny when you like do things because other people are doing it. Time on sudden, it kind of blows up in your face or it just doesn't work out. Yeah. I feel like I've done that before where it's just. Yeah. You always have that. I thought which that intuitive thought and then the eagles like, no, no, no. To like for me, personally, kind of goes to the belief that I which I am do not have any more. But the belief previously that I had that I can't make a lot of money doing what I love. So be like you'd had that temptation like I could see myself doing that to you'd had that temptation to make this money doing this. And then it'd be like, okay. Well, not your meditation because I'm making all this money and real estate to you know, sorry, I thought about that with certain things having parts of my life or parts of how I make money still going because I'm like, oh, then I can still do what I love. But you know, that's not even really true. I think a lot of times I think we all kind of agree that we should listen to the voice inside. But it's not like you walking around. There's this one voice that saying do this don't do that, you know, that voice there. But then there could also be hundred other voices from ego from your conscious mind from greed. From all these other places from feel not wanting to be alone from fear. And so all of those voices are kind of competing with each other. And what I found is that that's one of the reasons why the practice of meditation is so essentials because it pure clarifies that the underlying voice of your purpose. Your passion, that's keeping you here and relevant. So when you are able to listen to that, it doesn't here's the other thing about it. When you're listening to that. It's not gonna lead you to a place of greater comfort is going to challenge the status quo and things that are no longer relevant for you. So it's oftentimes is is going to be is going to take a lot of courage to hear that voice and follow through. And then that's why we kind of sometimes default to the ego egos going to say, hey, look, you can be really comfortable if this thing pans out, you're gonna make all this money. People are going to really think you're smart, and they're going to get more. You're going to get better partners. And, you know, get that nice house. So that's how you can kind of tell if there are all these voices, whichever. The voice is challenging your idea that happiness is outside of yourself. That's your inner voice. And then the eagle voice is trying to kinda snuff out the that that part of you that wants to be challenged wants to grow and wants to Paul beyond trying to find happiness outside of yourself. I feel like that's a lot of the reason I agree with you. And I think that's a lot of reasons why people are fearful to meditate because it's almost like an underlying understanding and knowing that like if they do start meditate, they're going to hear their inner voice interview is going to be a little scary, and it's conflict conflict ding to the current life that they're living and answers that they get are scary. Because once you get those answers, it's then on you to do the decisions do the hard work. You know, maybe break break up with that boyfriend or. Girlfriend or partner, whatever it is or quit that job. And you know, so it's I think that that's a lot of the block with people with meditation is that you're finally going to hear yourself, and it's scary. But it's and it's and it's also inevitable like the change is going to have to happen. Yeah. To make it worse. Binding Norring it. And and what meditation does is scary? But it helps you kind of get in front of it. And you know, I was telling you guys earlier when I walked in that I'm doing the whole Noman thing. I'd given up all my possessions that don't fit in a carry on bag, and now I'm just kind of traveling around and whatever, but there's a difference in consciously choosing to give everything up versus, oh, I got evicted or Sutton such kick me out of the house and a hat start over or some hurricane came through in wiped out. All my stuff right starting over from enforced. Change is always harder than than making a conscious choice to make a change. And when you make the conscious choice. Yeah. It's a lot more uncomfortable. But it's a lot more fun and adventurous two. And and I think that's what's happening. I think I think a lot of times when we find ourselves exp. Experiencing a lot of suffering and misery is because there were queues there that we didn't listen to and then we got kind of frogmarched into the change against our will kicking and screaming, and it just makes it a thousand times worse than if we were able to kind of listen to the queues take action on them, which is going to be scary in uncomfortable and all of that. But we make the choice, and which means that we can kind of we can kind of navigate ourselves in whatever direction we want to be in and maintain a greater sense of a present moment awareness around with the next opportunity is going to be and it's harder to do that. If you're still looking back behind you thinking, what happened in it wasn't supposed to be like this, and you know, being kind of stuck or as my friend says having keeping the past on life support it robs us. The ability to be really present to whatever because we can we know that they're opportune. Unity's always happening around us. The only question is what extent can we see them? And I think humans just have this like competitive nature to hang on. And like to like, see if they can fight through or I mean, maybe I just saw that a lot like when I was living in New York where I'm just gonna try and stick with it as long as I can. And it's like and they almost like secretly wait for a change to happen. Instead of what you're saying and act to yourself, which is more empowering and more peaceful. Will they think the sign is supposed to literally smack them across the hack. When slowdown signs all over the place. And we see this with health. You know? Yeah, you start coughing and runny nose know that it's the sign that you need to take you need to rest. You know, there was some imbalance happening before maybe you were traveling law or you weren't sleeping properly or whatever in your body's now telling you, you need to do something different doesn't mean that you can't continue on. On following through whatever your your vision was but you also need to rest and just kind of do it a little bit differently. So that's how I kind of liked to interpret it because I think a lot of people, especially you know, when you don't have enough life experience you start to mistake the road blocks as oh, this is not meant to be. But really what's happening is just that that particular path may not be meant to be at that particular time. But the overarching vision may still be very relevant for you. You just have to do it a little bit differently. You know, how to our listeners distinguish between like tests tests, I'm using that loosely, but I find some. Yeah. Between tests and roadblocks are something that has not for them. Sometimes if I like say, yes to something that's been calling me, there'd be a few things that happened that really kind of test my commitment to it. How do you distinguish? Well, I think again, that's what that's why the kind of inner. Inner work is so necessary because all the answers are going to be coming from within. Like, no, one can really tell you what's relevant for you in this moment, only you can can tap into that. And and it's gotta be it's gotta be a moment to moment thing because you can download a sign right now doesn't mean that it's going to be relevant twenty minutes from now. So if you wait twenty minutes to do the thing that you should have done twenty minutes ago. It may no longer be relevant at that moment in which case you make a mistake. Right. Because there was some new information that was being presented. So the richest information about whatever's going to happen in the future where we should be positioned to take full advantage of the future opportunity is only ever found in the present moment. So present moment awareness is the most important awareness to be tapped into and that's what meditate. Does it gives you access to whatever's happening in the present moment? Now, if you haven't been meditating consistently for twenty thirty forty years, it's not going to happen next week. It's not going to happen tomorrow. But you can start laying the foundation now. And maybe you know, you you you can capture the the e Piff knee or the insider, whatever it is ten percent more now that you've been meditating everyday. And then next year you can capture it, you know, twenty five percent more than you would have otherwise without meditating at all. And then as you continue on year after year, it starts become more of a regular thing. And then it's the norm. It's the norm. Right. But it it will stabilize slowly over time. But we have to be consistent and our in our practice. Right. And so that's you know, there's no shortcuts. To this. Unfortunately, because the thing that's keeping us from being able to hear it or feel it or see it is our own stress accumulation, you know, sleep deprivation, most of us are massively sleep deprived in our society. How much do you sleep? Well, I'll answer that in a second. But just to put a number to it be averaged millennial hose their body two to three years of missed sleep, which means that if you fell asleep tonight in two thousand eighteen you have to sleep straight through two thousand twenty one without waking up payoff sleep debt that yo your body, right? And so everyone focuses on quantity. Okay. We'll tell me how many numbers. Okay. So I'll block out from, you know, eight o'clock at night until native clock in the morning do twelve hours, and then I'll it doesn't work like that. It's not really about quantity. If you're getting mediocre sleep. It's really about quality and one of the main benefits from consistent meditation is it increases the quality of your sleep. So to get back to Chris question. How much sleep do? I get I get about an average of five hours of sleep a night, maybe six, okay. But if you're getting a high quality of rest, and that's the same as someone else who sleeping for ten hours getting mediocre quality of rest. Right. So that's what we want to put our focus on. And you can't you can't. Have the sleep without getting rid of the thing. That's inhibiting you from being able to get into a higher quality asleep, which is the stress the stress is mitigated by chemicals cortisol adrenaline. And all of that. Those are the most stimulating chemicals the body produces right? It's meant to keep you on edge worried and strong enough to run away from a bear attack. Right. But you don't need to feel those ways when you're lying in your tempur-pedic mattress at night with lavender on your. In your quiet room, you know, supposedly sleeping and not being able to sleep because you know, your mind won't turn off. While the mind is not going to turn off if the body's telling the mine be on alert be on alert be on alert this danger danger danger danger danger, so rest is like kryptonite to stress, right? And so what meditation has been shown to do very effectively. It's called the relaxation response. And I talk about it in my book bliss, more it can take the body beyond that threshold. In other words that barrier of mediocre rest and get it into a deep and profound state of rest two to five times deeper minute for minute than sleeping, the mediocre sleep. And as a result, the rest, chemicals, go in and they're like they like they're like drain. They start dissolving the stress chemicals in the nervous system. And as a result. Whether you want to or not you start sleeping like a baby. And now that you've gotten sleep back online, your reproduction system can come back online and your digestive system because all of these long term survival systems, they get compromised when the body is going in and out of the stress reaction so many times because it takes up too much energy for the body to digest food, and protect you against the bear and reproduce and protect you against the lion and balance your hormones and protect you against the dangerous, you know tiger. So once the body is is satisfied that the tiger and the bear and the lion or finally gone away. They're out of the bedroom. Then it can finally slip off into the deep and profound state of sleep that it's already designed to experience. And now, you have an outlet for the stress that comes in during tomorrow, it can come in whatever your day is like doesn't really matter because it goes right back out in your sleep. And then ultimately, the body can go into yesterday's archives of stress that was stored up and not released and get rid of that. And then last weeks and then last month's than last year. And then ultimately, it can get into whatever happened during childhood and pull that out. And and how do, you know this because you find that you're able to be more present in the moment less than less things since Asians healings, yank you out of the present moment. So present moment awareness is not something we need to read about and study and remind ourselves be present present present because that that's not gonna put us in the present. Moment. It's a spontaneous occurrence of of having a nervous system that is more balanced than not. And then as a result. We're just naturally present. In the way, you know, it is you're not even thinking about being present. You're just in the moment. You're just enjoying whatever's happening around you wherever you are. You can be in traffic, you can be in the post office. You can be any of those situations that people find boring and monotonous, and you fascinated by everything and the light in the sounds and the people look at what the people are wearing an all this. It's like a kid, you know, you can put a kid in a post officer not bored just looking around and they're playing with things and you put something in their hands. They look at it. So you have this kind of like an a sense in the sense of wander everywhere. And and that's what present moment awareness, really really feels like. Pitiful. Yeah. That's really good. We, cultivate that on our walks. We look at all the trees and all the plant. Yeah. Easy to do it in nature, but the real. Yeah. Real mastery level is can you do it in my offense. In traffic.

Toxic relationships may be toxic things. Putting in your body that kind of changed her kind of freed your body up of even more of that or. Yeah. You don't. So when I was modeling. I was yeah. I was I grew up in Alabama. So that's kind of middle America fast food central. So I literally would eat fast food like people drink water news, nothing. All right. Every day. I would be arby's or beat Wendy's or order pizza at night. And I remember one time in high school we had this exchange student from France. And we were talking one day and has Dr said, you know, so how often do you eat hamburgers in France? What do they do the French hamburger quote, and she's thought about and she goes, oh, probably once a year and my jaw just dropped. Like, I couldn't even imagine. How anybody could get through a week without eating at least half a dozen hamburgers. So you were doing and she said, yeah. Every day every day all day. So that's the extent to which I was like basically living on a fast food diet. This does the standard American diet. Yeah. So fast forward I'm in. I'm in Miami now and trying to get into the fashion industry. And and I was had been tracking this one guy. His name is Michael Anderson, and he's really handsome guy kind of a mixed race. Lou is like just you know, he was getting so much work. Like every magazine, I spent hours and Barnes and noble, just looking through magazines. And I always see this guy guy. That's getting so much work. I want to get as much work as he gets. And so anyways, I'm walking down Washington boulevard or avenue, whatever's call him, I in south beach, and I see Michael Anderson standing on the freaking corner. And it was like, wow, I'd spotted Jesus Christ. Some like all nervous, and he's a standing there. I don't think he didn't have a shirt on. He was on an escape us chain smoking a cigarette and. And so I kind of nervously walked over to him. And I'm all dressed up like, you know, like how I thought model should should cells. Meanwhile, exactly the opposite a homeless person if you really want to do industry. True. And so I walk up to Michael, and excuse me, I big fan of your work and this and that and he's standing there looking at me and he's like picking drags of the cigarette. And and I tell him new to modeling, and you know, this and that and he finally says, you know, what you should give up me. And I said what he says she give me I said, okay, why he set your job lines would be more pronounced if you gave up meat your your skin is holding its retaining a lot of water because of the salt in me. And so it was like God telling me the top eating me. So knew I was going to stop eating meat. The only question was house. I going to do it. So even though it was purely for vanity purposes because I just wanted to be able to compete for those same jobs like nothing, I had no no idea about the health consequences or anything like that. I started. Cutting out meat, and then I noticed that I stopped getting headaches. I used to get headaches all the time so much so that I would take extra strength excedrin every day in anticipation of headache that I knew was coming, and I've been doing that since high school, my mom, you know, my mom would literally give me bottles and bottles of extra strength excedrin. And I remember getting an ulcer one time, and then researching and realizing it was from taking all that while that ibuprofen. So anyways, I started cutting out me I start feeling better. And I realized oh, wow. There's a connection here. A stop eating the fast food. I'm feeling better. You know? And then I started getting really curious, and I started seeing okay? What else am I doing? That's that's not good for me. Right. Because this does no wellness seen back, then and. So I didn't really have any mentors that read the. Michael, no. Yeah. How to smoke cigarettes? I read diet for new America. And that really changed my life. I read the Gabriel cousins book, I can't remember the name of it. But it was one of the pivotal books on the hell scene at the time. And I started just transforming my whole diet and became a vegetarian, and then I started to become vegan. And then this is over years and years, I started fasting once a week start cutting out. That's are cutting out sugar are cutting out cook foods at one point. I was raw food is for awhile this actually conflicted with my modeling career because I started losing all this weight because I wasn't really eating enough food. I got down to cutting everything out like literally everything read anyth- anything that was good alcohol. Stop drinking alcohol mid twenties now, and then I got down to lip balm and believe it or not lip balm. Was the hardest thing this top island lip balm. This putting lipoma lips? I realized that I was I was walking. Around. I was walking around with or and five little tubes of lip balm on me at all times. Because by didn't have it on my lips after five minutes. I could I would be on edge because my lips are get really really dry, and I read about how you know lip balm actually, dries out your lips and your lips can naturally moisturised themselves. So I just went cold Turkey on lip balm. And who's a heart thirty days a long thirty days, but eventually woke up one morning, my lips to start it naturally moisturizing themselves, and so I stopped stopped that and so this is back again, this is back in my mid twenties. When I had all these experiments and just really enjoy enjoyed seeing what I could live without in. How I felt as a result of it. And then since then I've kind of reintegrated a lot of those things back. They don't really drink that much. I I'm not vegan anymore. Still started eating meat again. Although I I'm beacon free. Unle? So if I'm in a vegan restaurant or vegan festival, I'm not going to be freaking out like all. Whereas my me, I'm totally fine. Doing all that. And and I haven't touched lipoma again since those days. How are you out lip balm? Addicts not avian my sister. I think is a dictator like bird species victim to lip balm lose it like I don't have it with my possession enough to be addicted. Just gives me the few like, oh you need water. Yeah. I need to be hydrated lipstick. And some his is my mouth. State will be out crusty for day. Lips touch on like the happiness peace too. Because I think a lot of people around our age or even younger, I was talking to my brother, and he said something, and he's like, I just wanna be happy. And I was like, yeah. I know. But I do think there's this myth about being happy or something around it that like people are just going to the idea of happiness and skipping some things that could bring them happiness name me. And I I think the myth is that happiness is a choice, and you hear this a lot in the wellness community in the yoga community. All you just choose happiness. You know, you just have to be a focus on what's making you happy. Or a lot of the life coaches will have you thinking that you're not abundant enough or, you know, soon as she start to align yourself with your passion, your purpose than you're going to be happy. And and I don't think those are the that's the case. Yeah. I think it's the opposite. I think it's you know happiness is a state of alert. Awareness that needs to be cultivated. And and once you have cultivated sufficiently, you'll find yourself just kind of naturally and organically, making choices that put shoe in alignment with your purpose. I don't think it's a thing where you have to consciously force yourself to be in alignment with anything. If you're not feeling if you're not genuinely feeling that state inside, it's not being directly experienced. I don't think it can be an intellectual concept, and without any direct sensual experience and still lead you to wear you really wanna be or where you're most useful. So I I wrote this book the entered Jim and came out in two thousand fourteen and the tag of mine was happiness is not a choice because happiness is not a choice from the whole thing was it's a inner workout for strengthening happiness, and I quoted happiness with doing pull ups, right? Like, for instance, everybody understands how to pull up Chris Dominy pull. Can you do unassisted on like forty years? Yeah. Can you do one on this? You want? You know, how to do one though? Right. Like everybody understands it intellectually. And I think happiness is like that like we understand the idea of happiness, but if life places at demand on us, such as, you know, do ten pushups, and you can only do one pull up you're not going to be upset with yourself that you kit do all ten because in your mind, you probably could go there. But in your body you hadn't really trained sufficiently to be able to go there. But you do know that, you know, if if it needed to happen, you could just spend some time training you do one for a week. And then maybe you get up to like that. And you train in your training train. And maybe after five or six months, you're able to do ten pull ups, right? And and so then if life places at the man on Yoon says, can you just do to pull ups? No problem bullets, right? So. When life places of the man on us, which is you know, it's time to leave that relationship or heavily that job and we haven't trained sufficiently our inner muscles. Then it's going to seem like it's just too hard because the little happiness that we think we're getting from that situation and the truth of the matters is just, you know, enough happiness to get us to do one up. It's not enough to get us, the courage and the strength to be able to really pull away in the way that will honor our deserving power. So what happens is we end up slipping back into those situations or finding another situation that resembles that situation because we just haven't cultivated the strength and the willpower to really properly pull away and the president present moment awareness to be able to spot the next opportunity that takes us to the kind of next level of growth in volition. So we just keep replaying the same thing over and over and over and. And and you know, so then that that storyline becomes that person. Doesn't make me happy or that jobless make me happy. But the truth matters. We just haven't called evaded enough happiness within because it's not that person's responsibility to make us happy. Right. A job it relationship situation can only ever be an outlet for the happiness that we have inside. So if we're miserable inside it doesn't matter what the other person has going on that relationship will become at some point a showcase for our own personal level of misery. And you know, maybe a little bit of happiness sprinkle in. And I think when people understand that and they see it as their responsibility than it gives an whole new reason and meaning behind the inter inter exercises. Right. And wanna say interacts or sizes them talking about inner physical muscles senior, emotional, and spiritual muscles, you know? So some of the exercises that I researched that can take us can raise our baseline. Level line of happiness are very very simple stuff that we've been taught since we were little children, you know, be grateful so gratitude exercises. Sure, you guys have done a lot of that out of work slowing down and just appreciating the moment of little bit more being patient random acts of kindness, no sharing giving things away without feeling like you have to hold onto them so tightly obviously meditation is one and then there other exercises dancing and volunteering time to help other people who who may not have as much as you that Becca thing. So just very simple stuff that we should be doing all the time. Anyway, that raises the baseline level of happiness, and how do we know because we have an easier time following the heart and and and graduating ourselves from unsustainable relationships. So is there with types of meditation or for the listeners that really aren't familiar? Can you familiar familiarize them with the types of meditative? There aren't so I I I'm an advocate for all meditations first of all as one of that on the record. Okay. My personal practices Baidic meditation, which is known to be one of the householder styles of meditation. And that the stink tion is made. Because it's different from what people would describe as the classical approach to meditation where you're sitting with your back strayed your legs crossed in your fingers together. And you're probably doing it on a cushion or maybe on the floor. So that that approached meditation is also effective. It's just a lot or challenging physically. And because it's physically challenging, especially if you don't have very very flexible body, then it's going to cause you're. Mind feel busier than it already is. And the reality is at everybody's mind is technically busy meaning that no one's walking around with a blank mine. We are. We're all having a series of thoughts. And they say that at the end of the day, we've all experienced tens of thousands of of unique, discreet thoughts. Right. And most of those thoughts are recycled from yesterday. So that's why the mind feels busiest because we're basically playing out groundhog's day every day moment to moment. And and one of the reasons why we're dictate to social media is because social media presents the mine with newness with new possibilities. And so we we get addicted to that because we're all we're allows us to constantly compare. And contrast the groundhogs day experience with whatever's happening in other people's lives and makes us long for those other possibilities. So anyway, when you sit down and and. Tate in the householder approach. One of the first instructions is you sit comfortably you, relax. You can do it on your couch. Do it in your car and just by adjusting your body position? Like that you free your mind up to leave the kind of busy surface level of awareness and to go into a more settled state. So that's what I personally do. And that's why teaching people how to do using settling sounds or mantras and people are able to literally go from this kind of busy frantic. I can't meditate feeling too. Yummy, deep tranquil blissful experience and the meditation and MRs with no prior experience. This is just literally sitting there, and allowing it to occurs not something you have to force or manipulator control. In fact, if you try to control it, it'll keep the mind busy if you just allow it to occur. Then it happens rather spontaneously. In the same way. That a dream may happen if you just lie down in close rise. You don't have to force yourself dream, it just that's a feature of the experience. So we have this within us all of us. Do it doesn't matter who you are where you're from. How smart you are many degrees? You have you have the ability to meditate in the same way that everyone has the ability to swim. If you learn how to move in concert with the water, then you may glide across the water. And if you learn how to operate in concert with your mind, you can glide through your thoughts and to a more settled state, and it feels really really yummy and delicious. And usually what happens is people become addicted to it very quickly. And I mean that word in the in not in the, you know, recovery sense. Where it's an unsustainable habit. It's something that I will say dependent you your body starts to look for the chemicals that are released during the meditation to really high quality bliss chemicals, which are also very restful for the nervous system, and in has all kinds of really amazing health benefits. You have you have endorphins you have serotonin dopamine oxytocin all the classic happy chemicals. You have beta endorphins, you have a non demean you have nor epinephrine in all of these are, the if you don't have the serotonin dopamine, you you can't be happy. You can't feel happy. If you don't have oxytocin. You can't feel connected to anyone so people who are experiencing depression. It's not that they're depressed people. It's that they're experiencing life through depressed nervous systems. It's the nervous system is the body. That's the press the body that's anxious. Right. And so that is an indication that there is some imbalance that has happened in their life. Maybe as a result of trauma. Maybe just not getting the needs that they the body's needs love food, whatever the have having to overcome some sort of deeply emotional trauma. Attic experience at some point in their life, and it causes an imbalance which then he it manifests as depression. Right. So that means now the bodies in the point where it's not producing dopamine and serotonin like everybody else's body. And it doesn't matter how much money that person has a matter. Who's around them does matter if they're in the happiest place on earth Disney World or wherever they are. They can't feel that emotion of happiness. Right. And so that's why a lot of people who do this inner work. They're able to to remiss the body away from depression and back towards balance. And then once that starts happening, they find that they're able to get the chemicals that are that the body naturally produces and they're happy for no reason. And that's the real real true. Happiness is you're happy for no reason is not because you got a raise. It's not because somebody said that your tractive it's not because you know, you're you you remembered something. It's just because that's that's your nature. Our nature is happiness. You know, a lot of people in certain meditation communities will say our nature's suffering. But I think suffering is really a result of just mistaken perceptual acuity. But if you have if you have enough experience in going into your simplest form of awareness. Your least excited state you will you will find that. It's it's just. Great sense of film and bliss, and and one this which then gives you more access to that. Since of wander that we talked about earlier. I've loved a no more about the shine people can get involved, and what it is. So when I stopped drinking. I obviously, I don't know for those of you who don't drink. Naso? Changes your your social life a bit. You don't realize how much as adults how much of our social life is centered around alcohol consumption, and it's fine. You know, it's like I'm not gonna you know, it's not big deal people, drink, whatever. But it's not the way I wanna spend my time usually around this whole idea of happy hour being this thing where people come out and see who can lose the most amount of consciousness in the quickest time in order to be happy, which doesn't make any sense at all. So I wanted to create a social event that contain the elements of socializing that I felt personally inspired by such as you know, TED talks. Everybody loves a good talk learning something interesting, good food, healthy, food and community and live music and comedy. And so this shine was sort of born out of that that need. Just to have more community. More connection bring together. The people who also didn't feel the need to to be tipsy or buzzed. Just to be out in social settings for a couple of hours and started off very small with just a dozen people then it slowly grew over three or four years to two hundred three hundred people coming out about once every couple of months, and and having this variety show sort of experience in a sober setting. But, you know, again, having a lot of fun and a lot of connection and being the idea the ideas to use this format was platform to inspire people to do more to be more into get more. And so one of the promises we make that when you leave there, you're going to be a lot more inspired to just be you. And and use what you have to do the most you can with what you have right? And one of the highlights of the night is that we take four hundred dollars from the ticket sales. Which is all it's all nonprofits. No one's making any money, but we budget the venue and the food and all of that. So that we have about four hundred dollars leftover, and then we randomly select someone from the audience, and we give them the four hundred dollars in cash on stage. And we tell them take this four hundred dollars in cash and just do something to help people with and then come back and tell us what you did with that money. And so over the years you've seen all kinds of really amazing stories of what people did with four hundred dollars. I'm just a couple of share those one woman who used the money to pay for lift rides and for underwear for sexual assault Akkas. So I didn't know this a lot of other people didn't know it. But when you are when you report on instance of sexual assault, you have to go to the police station, and they confiscate your underwear, and they have some box of like this really terrible used underwear for you to put on instead, and obviously you're bit traumatized if not a lot traumatized, and so they won't let you drive yourself home. And the normally put you in a cab in. No caps can be a little bit creepy or a little bit sketchy. If you're kind of triggered around all that experience that trauma. So they have lift this woman. She she had a situation where she was sexually assaulted, and she went through that whole process and just didn't feel better about it afterwards. And so she took the money, and she helped other people in one of the things that she found that she discovered was that a lot of victims of sexual assault are men which a lot of people didn't realize either. So there's another woman who. Another guy actually who is in New York. He went to the us bookstore. New York ape bought a bunch of classic used books, and he created these bookmarks call the gorilla book club where you write down. How how this book was meaningful to you? And he's leaves them out in public places, and the the call to action is, you know, read this book and write down what it meant to you. And then leave it somewhere. Yeah. So that's been happening for a couple years, it's grown into its own thing website and all that. So we see a lot of different things like that. And what? And the reason why we keep it at four hundred dollars because we want people to see that. You don't have to be, you know, rich. You don't have to be Rockefeller in order to make a difference. You can make a difference with whatever you have. Now, we tell people at the show, you know, you don't have to win this foreign dollars. You may have. Couple of hundred dollars in your account. Go home and tell your kids or tell your -nificant other or your friends. Hey, I won this money. Let's see what we can do that. We have thirty days to do something really cool with to help people. And and we've had people do that. They just created their own challenge, and they came back. And so does what they did with it. So if you're curious about it, we have a website on the shine movement dot org, and then there's also a YouTube channel the shine movement where you can see videos of people with money, and I've been and it was. We sell fun. I wanted to ask what what's new or what are you doing next year? Like, what are you excited about? I've been promoting my book that came out bliss more how to succeed in meditation without really trying and and people have been really connecting with that. Because it's normally if people wanna learn what I've been practicing they have to find me on a retreat or they have to be in Los Angeles or New York or London. Take a personal course it costs a fair bit of money, and we spend a few days together, and you know, wouldn't have happening in these kind of wellness circles, which I'm very much a part of is you have to be wealthy and a fluent. And you know, there are a lot of there's not a lot of diversity. And I want it to democratize. The level of training that I do. So that you don't have to you can be anybody as long as you can get a hold of a book or an audio recording or electric, copier, whatever. So so that was the impetus behind writing my book is to put this knowledge into a format that anyone could access and and give them the same tools that the fluent, you know, people privileged people are able to it. And and and that way everybody gets to access that state because I think we're in an age now where a lot of people are feeling very anxious, and we're starting to realize it's not about making more money. You know, there was a thing. I read once sick Carl young was once asked by an interviewer. Would you rather work for wealthy clients or for poor clients and without even really hesitating? He said I want to work for the. Wealthy clients. And of course, this confused the interviewer who's wondering why why why not the poor? If if money's not an issue for them. And he said because with poor clients you spent so much time trying to convince them that having more money. It's not going to be the answer to their problems with wealthy clients. You can get right to the root of what the real problem is. You know, and and I think that a lot of people are living under the presumption that off of only I had more money, and is again, there's a there's a study that says that you need to have your basic needs met in order to feel fulfilled and happy, but beyond that point. Once you have your basic needs met having more money. In other words, being rich and wealthy is not gonna make you any happier. You know? That's why Diddy and all these guys have the song MO money MO problems because a lot of times it creates more challenge. Well, this is amazing. Yeah. Yeah. I think part of you know, what our community craves. Our what we felt is just like the permission to go there. And and to know that everyone's meditation can look and feel differently. I just think that's really powerful. So they can find your book. Bliss, more everywhere. Books are sold. I'm everywhere. So and the shine movement dot org, and we're outs.

President trump cancelled a trip to europe with other world leaders to commemorate memory world war two so he could stay home and monitor hurricane dorian a category five storm. That's already caused catastrophic damage to the bahamas and it's still threatening the east coast of the united states trump's hurricane monitoring included two rounds of golf and more than one hundred and twenty tweets where he attacked the media jim komi debra messing and others the morning for her. You just you just minding your own business. As a whole new cycle debra messing missed that one it did he say she congratulated me when the print scott picked up. I don't even remember john pair. Saw it on twitter over over over vacation. I saw two things on twitter that i was glad glad i wasn't a part of something about bedbugs and brad stevens debra messing popped up and then i threw my phone in the ocean was like great. I will say one of my one regret. It's the small regret in my life but i was at the up fronts promoting a little show called sixteen hundred penn and trump was there promoting the apprentice and he was like he was on the other side the room and i really did at the moment i'm gonna walk up that motherfucker and basically you know launching because of the birther stuff and you know. I just didn't cool story about how you're almost a hero. I wasn't wasn't even close listen. I'll have i'll have conversations at a cocktail party. I'll do it just didn't do it that day. So he golfing. He said all these dreams out. Some of trump's angriest tweets were in response to a washington post story about how the president's own advisers allies characterize these last few months is a last summer that was a quote filled with what they described as quote squandered opportunities self inflicted controversies self sabotage and a president. They didn't who was crashed through the remaining. Guardrails doesn't sound like the trump we know does it guys and now i'm trying to think of something like rot boy summer. I'm something like that dumb trump's summer workshop if you can get it through and sometime during the podcast. Isn't it cuffing time now. Isn't that the new thing everyone's wanting to know what that means. Google it okay so i want to spend some time on the law summer story but i i know that we never liked the media's obsession with optics when and obama was president but how much should it matter that trump was playing golf in rage tweeting in the midst of a hurricane threat and we haven't talked about yet another mass shooting shooting in odessa texas that left seven people dead. I mean the old rules of politics said it mattered a lot. You know i mean listen. Can you monitor <hes> the track of a hurricane from a golf cart. Yes absolutely but it's also true that when the president in the united states gets all the relevant people in in a room in his barking orders at them is demanding to know like what what's been done to make sure that the people of florida taking care of things get done faster and he's obviously obviously not doing that. He also cancelled a trip to commemorate world war two and then congratulated the people of poland for being invaded. You guys see so it's like the guys just banging around through the world screwing things up left and right and then fucking around on the golf course but it does speak to the fact that he just doesn't care about the job your end there was him saying that <hes> he'd never heard of a category five hurricane or time saying like oh. We've never seen that one before which is crazy since there's been multiple category five hurricane since he's been president <hes> and he also throat false information about the storm when he said that alabama was in the path even though alabama was about two hundred fifty miles in the national weather service corrected him. These actually was a lookout lookout missouri. The storm is coming for you. Don't vaccinate your children. I think that the tweets are probably as better worse than the actual golfing. You know it's it's as usual trump when he actually sometimes when he doing nothing is is better than doing something because when he does something it's always damage right. I mean i'm all i'm i'm slightly torn about my own analysis cisco's he could be in a meeting <hes> demanding that we knew the hurricane i know another stupid controversy that happened when we were gone <hes> or he could be tweeting classified satellite images of iran's missile program. I don't know it's yes. It made me thinking you know. Acts always talks about this. Ah talks about this during our interview is it's like the exhaustion theory of trump you. You know that that at some point a lot of voters are just gonna be like however they have. They feel about issues and ideology. There's going to be like can we just wake wake up to a president when there's a storm coming in there's a mass shooting who is at least quiet about it tries to bring the country together tries to talk like a normal person doesn't just just create fifteen other fucking problems. You know just because he's like angry. Tweet it yeah. It's pretty amazing. How not boring he is and how much of this happening all the time. There's a there's a story and we'll talk about it but that that talked about how bad trump summer has been <hes> but one thing thing that was so surprised just surprising to me as it said you know. It's been a long time since trump's july fourth military parade and i just sort of sat back years ago. It was july that was eight weeks ago. That feels like a lifetime ago. There have been so many many scandals since that mini-scandal yeah yeah i mean the post story captures the fact that when you're elected president you have four years to accomplish things and put points on the board really you have about half amount of time but you know technically for years ears and not only is he not doing smart strategic things in this summer the august recess period or any other time. He's actively upsetting setting people who might otherwise support. I mean i was trying to think of things he could do. That would make sense. He could go do a whole bunch of events in you know like right-leaning states about all the conservative judges cut through seems like he would enjoy that it's something that is his base would get behind or go to some of these swing districts where democrats it's just got elected and put pressure on them to vote your way unlike immigration. There's so many obvious things he could do and i'm not even trying to like you know do the thing where you say president trump. If he act like a normal president these are like basic things that he might even enjoy in his adult brain because he likes getting adulation so let let's get into this piece. I i agree. I thought it it was really smart and well reported because you know knows how the summer and fall before an election year is a critical time for president to notch some legislative and political victories and also build a case for his reelection campaign. Trump has used the time to go on racist tirades against various members of congress and the city of baltimore <hes> botched the response bonds to white nationalist terrorism that was inspired in part by his racist talk of an invasion <hes> flipflop on gun safety and continue losing a trade trade war that is now threatening our entire economy so the question is how much does all of this matter the posts that according to an average of seven polls that they did trump's approval rating slipped from from forty three percent in june to forty one percent in august but as you just pointed out tommy. It's not just about the things he's done wrong or badly but it's sort of about missed opportunity. It's an opportunity question. I mean i think that people don't like the erratic tweeting and they don't like the unpresidential behavior and that's just something that we've seen show up in polls for a long time even while his approval rating has has helped pretty steady the thing that would really worry me if i were in the white house and trump's reelection campaign is the trade war because you're seeing real electronic indicators that manufacturing might be down that the trade war is impacting like germany for example and other countries that there might be some global repercussions to what's happening so if if i'm trump and i think a percentage point could get shaved off of g._d._p. Because of this trade war that i've launched for no reason with no endgame that's like an existential threat threat to his reelection yeah and and look you know this you can overstate the importance of this summer before an election year because you know we all remember member in in two thousand eleven the summer before obama's reelect and twenty twelve <hes>. It was probably obama's worst summer of his presidency. It was the debt ceiling crisis. <hes> the united the u._s. is credit was downgraded partly because of the debt crisis his fight with the republicans his approval rating was at its lowest <hes> of course he went on to go win reelection but one one of the reasons obama went on to win is because he began to lay the case for his reelection and he basically you basically two things one we we introduced a bill in the fall and we knew that that jobs bill probably wouldn't pass congress because the republicans were obstructing everything but it looked like back obama was fighting like hell to fix the economy and to help people and we had that refrained the job speech pass this bill pass this bill do something for people you know and then we decided to lay out the case for his reelection early and said that the defining issue of the election was going to be economic inequality in an economy that still wasn't working for people people even before we knew that mitt romney would be opponent but we suspected maybe he would be an obama sort of set the tone for what that campaign would be like by saying. This is going to be my message. This is the contrast trashed. I'm gonna drive with the nominee and you do think that some barely competent set of advisors in the trump white house and barely barely competent president would at least be thinking okay. Let's use the summer and this fall <hes> while all the democrats are fighting each other in a primary to set up what the message is going to be for the trump campaign going into twenty twenty and they just don't seem like they're able to do this well even if they wanted to. They don't have the ability to. I do it with trump. I think there's two things happening one. You know there's a flip side of the coin into what happened. In two thousand sixteen in that donald trump takes all the oxygen out of the room so hillary larry clinton gives a long speech about the economy but they take the fight she had with trump over. Whatever the crisis of the week is you know. Trump does go on these rallies and he gives a a very lengthy speech and he does mention judges. He does issue. I think what is the kind of thirty thousand foot message for his campaign which is love me or hate me. You have to vote for me because of the economy because of all these things as i do 'cause he's other side is crazy. The other side is the squad like there is a kind of message. He's trying to put out there but he stands at that podium and speaks for two hours and five four six of the things he says whether semi prepared off the cuff are so controversial. They become the story for for a couple of days. That's the first message never breaks message never breaks through through and then the second part is court. His message is the fact that you know. Even if you can't stand me look good the economy's doing but in part because of the trade war in part because of larger <hes> dynamics six in the economy he may not have that <hes> he may not be able to make that argument successfully so i think those are the two political problems at anyone trying trying to get trump to campaign is going to face even if they did have some master-plan tummy you mentioned a few <hes> things he could do or could have done to make make the summer better what are some other sort of steps that trump could've taken on some of these issues <hes> that would have made us even more nervous than we are heading into twenty twenty twenty or or what might he still. I mean we could go through. Some of the issues like just on guns for example. Yes of guns is a i think a signal example of what has been kind of repeated trump pattern from the beginning. I think that there was a fear. A lot of us had in the early days of the administration. Which is what happens if he really does deliver are on this idea of an unorthodox populist republican president right what if he comes in and doesn't infrastructure bill what if he comes in and does make a grand bargain on immigration <hes> and what's been fascinating is i think he changed the republican orthodoxy on immigration. He has bucked the republican orthodoxy on trade but otherwise he's been pretty lockstep so what happens is. There's a terrible shooting. Trump starts talking about background. Checks start sounding like he's going to pursue some kind of moderate great deal with democrats that he's going to buck the n._r._a. <hes> but of course that doesn't last and he ends up walking it back which he's done on a host of issues i mean fundamentally trump has never urban willing to buck the conservative base of the party <hes> to get a win and i think we are ca politically. I think that that has been valuable. It's sad for the country on issues like guns but i think politically it has put him in a box and i think the two issues you were you just said he has booked republican party pretty orthodoxy. He's bucked the moderate part of the orthodoxy on both immigration and and trade. He hasn't bugged it in a way that would lead him towards getting something done with democrats immigration like he's gone further to the right and a lot of the republicans were on immigration during the obama era or at least maybe half the party at that point <hes> and on trade. I mean you could see right now. He's trying to negotiate with pelosi in the democrats the nafta to deal right like you could see him getting some trade deal and that would to help him out but i don't know that that's going to happen right. I mean trade isn't she. Wanted i mean he he ran around saying that nafta was the worst deal ever negotiated and that he alone could fix it in they. They renegotiated some like really minor changes to the bill that might help like dairy farmers or you know change the way auto manufacturing standards are in mexico but then he now he doesn't seem to give a shit about the thing he's not pushing for it to get passed in congress. He's not pressuring democrats to fix it and the china trade war is the same thing i mean the things that i assume we're fighting for <hes> when it comes to our trade relations with china are like protecting intellectual property for corporations that it doesn't help some guy in wisconsin that helps like apple it helps major corporations and shareholders and other rich people so the things he's doing are misaligned this aligned with the priorities of working people who might have actually been hurt by the policies of the past when it comes to trade but he's not doing shit for it feels like we've zoomed past that exit sit on the highway of the like dealer haggling over intellectual property issues and trade words i mean he could. I suppose he could still backed down from this trade war with with china but i don't even know if he has the capacity to do that in his own anymore because the chinese are probably thinking well we're we're winning this thing and we're winning the politics in the united states so why would the chinese back back down at this point no. I don't think i mean i think that they are i think they've walked away from some of these negotiations are actively like giving him the finger and making a clear that they're not going to they're not going to do in mexico did which is be seen as plan when it comes to the other thing that i <hes> nat iglesias and ezra klein pointed out that a lot of things trump is fighting for when it comes to rule changes with china would actually are likely to lead to more jobs being outsourced in sent abroad not fewer because they're just helping corporation so in a sense what he's fighting forward likely harm workers yeah. That's part of it yeah that as long as the trade war is ongoing the trade war is the source of all all of these ills. It's the source of job losses. It's the source of economic dislocation. It's the source of your misery it as a scapegoat from two point two along with immigrants <hes> and if he does back down or achieve any kind of a deal all of a sudden that's the victory and who's the victory for all of a sudden. The thing you claimed was a solution turned turned out to not have been one so he he really is stuck in that as long as it's ongoing he's in his comfort zone which is attacking china claiming. He's fighting but to tom's point to others points. It's it's it's not possible for him to win because he's promised a bunch of different things that are actually in contradiction like keeping jobs in the united states and then achieving victory on i._p. Right these are things that are don't help everybody. I he's also ultimately. I think his whole goal is just to look tough and look like he's attacking somebody but when the when looking tough i leads to the economy faltering and people actually getting hurt. I don't think that's going to work and then were to come around on the back and say we'll actually jay powell the chairman of the fed's. It's fault here like no one knows what the hell he's talking about yeah so we've talked about this before but it almost seems like trump and his campaign sort of given up on trying to improve the president's political political standing and they're just hoping to win by disqualifying his opponent and maggie haberman reported this weekend that trump advisor recently told her that trump wants voters to feel negatively not not just about his opponents but about long standing institutions like the media and you know most of his rage tweets over the past couple of days have been directed towards the media media <hes>. What do you think about that strategy. Yeah i mean i can't i can't win but you can lose basically is what what he's doing it right and and you know i think if you're inside a trump campaign and you're trying to figure out how to be useful. It's not gonna be making trump different different. It's not going to be about trump making trump more popular. It's going to be about tearing down your opponents. Let me about dragging everybody down to his level because that's that's what he didn't twenty sixteen is the only path is the only way because the the other option is for trump to become a different person and that's been promised for a long time yeah that tweet about attacking institutions <hes> rang very true to me but it it also didn't seem particularly new you know i mean they're literally funding. Organizations apparently the trump people to dig up things journalists said and feed them to fucking talking breitbart so they can you know try to take the washington post down a peg and you know they know this is an asymmetric fight because then you have a bunch of <hes> journalists on twitter complaining complaining that they didn't let breitbart into one event as if it's like a you know is if there are actual news gathering organization and not just an arm of the republican party like the trump trump people are are telling us mystique dan work there it doesn't it doesn't matter <hes> but the broader fight against institutions is basically been republicans have done for decades they they want to undercut our faith in government they wanna make it harder participate in democracy and in so doing they can win with a smaller and smaller group of people actually voting for them. Yeah i do think that within this strategy of trying to disqualify his opponents and the media and saying don't believe anything bad that you hear about me is basically really has strategy. There's a clue for how democrats need to take him on which is like this is not about whether what trump is saying is true true or not whether the media's lying about it or not just forget about what you believe your own eyes right like what is your life like right in this trade war and you we saw this when we were testing <hes> messages in wisconsin and are changeable like talking about trump starting a trade war with china losing it and then trying to bail l. out big agribusinesses including some in foreign countries because he's fucked up this trade war so badly and hurting dairy farmers in wisconsin was one of the most powerful messages because has whatever trump says whatever he's lying about whatever he's yelling about whatever other people are saying about trump. He can't avoid what people are feeling in their own lives and what people have seen in their our own lives and so people know that he hasn't gotten anything done on guns even though you know ninety percent of the country wants background checks people are going to know if the economy starts art turning south because they're going to feel it right people are going to know when they read stories about <hes> some of the more extreme things. He's done on immigration that those things are happening. I like it at some point. He can keep telling us that everything the media is saying about him as a lie but he can't fully avoid the effects acts of his policies on actual yeah and you can tell you can tell he knows that and he's a little bit worried about is he will for example tweet tweet a lie about china's negotiations to briefly juice the stock market and try to fix the general impression about the state of the economy right so like their little windows into his like year yeah but i think it's incumbent upon democrats to continue to draw the lines between what trump is saying and and doing <hes> with the actual effects on people's lives love it. We were talking about this before the pod but you know that whole situation last week about <hes> trump promising pardons to aids right who get whatever who do whatever it takes to get the border wall built. I mean my first reaction was yes. This is another impeachable offense. Yes is the pardons are outrageous but i think probably most politically effective and talking about this is trump wants to go steal your land like like if you illegally lisa hillier land and pardon anyone who does the cry but we we sort of get into these like it's impeachable and and it's bad conduct the parts of this kind of stuff which is all important i agree but we've got to start talking about the real effects on people's lives like you live by the border and you're just going about your business. The federal government under donald trump might just wanna come and steal your land and with no due process nothing whatsoever like those are the connections that i think that democrats have to keep john if we if we hope to be successful pods of america is brought to you by indochino every man looks better and feels more confident when he puts on a suit indochino casino is the world's most exciting made to measurements where company they make suits and shirts to your exact measurements for an unparalleled fit and comfort looking to get married.

Let's talk about twenty twenty and the washington post. Dan balls had an excellent piece over the weekend about the electoral map in which states matter most. He writes quote. Just four states are likely to determine the outcome in twenty twenty each flip to the republicans republicans in two thousand sixteen but president trump on each only a percentage point or less the four pennsylvania michigan wisconsin and florida many analysts point to wisconsin is the single state upon which the election could turn so the piece quotes former obama campaign manager jim messina who we all worked with saying quote because the partisanship of the country and the president were now looking at the smallest map in modern political history <hes> i what is actually just so people know when people are talking about the map which states campaigns are gonna plan. What does that mean to sort of play leeann estate just so people people know like actually go. There spend time spend money. Put up t._v. Ads have a full field staff in the state like yes. Yes significant expenditure resources basically yeah. I think what people might not realize you know. Campaign has finite resources. You can't just look at a map and say yeah all these states. Look good so i want to compete in all these states. You have to decide where we're gonna. Put organization where we're going to put our candidate and then how much money we're gonna spend on television ads and you know in certain states and certain media markets very expensive to run television ads and other states. It's relatively inexpensive so it's not like you get to choose everything you do have to make decisions nations on a campaign about which states you wanna bet on to win <hes> so do you. What do you think do you agree with with. Jim's assessment that we are. We are down to these four states. I actually was thinking about an actually just philosophically. Don't totally understand what it means. In this sense it is true that there will be a maximal campaigns <music> in michigan wisconsin pennsylvania probably also arizona right there will be huge amounts of resources devoted to those the candidates will go there and and then the question is what what <hes> what will happen in other states and that will play out in part because the campaigns will do a dance with each other about where they put money where they match each other other so you know if if it is quite possible that it will boil down to a very small number of states but it is also quite possible depending on what each campaign decides to do that we will end up with tens. Hundreds of millions of dollars spent across twelve thirteen fourteen seats. I think we just don't know the the field of competition will be based on kind of a game theory a version of game theory that plays out over the course of the next year head fakes is trips things like that and over time we will come to see based on polls where candidates will go where they won't wear their money will go where it won't go right. I mean i think it's certainly safe to say they won't start that narrow. Which is why it was surprising to me to see people predicting with such confidence that it will be this tiny nap was also surprised that the dan <hes> who's one of the smartest reports out they didn't have arizona higher up discussion of what the democratic strategy will be like. I'm also it's it's a tough that pill to swallow that florida is potentially the centerpiece of this whole thing is florida's where you can see trump has actually had a pretty clear concerted in probably smart strategy to hip pilak democratic voters right. I mean they're trying to scare the shit out of older jewish voters. They're trying to be tough on madero <hes> to appeal to the venezuelan population. They're even considering giving venezuelan voters. A temporary protected status. They don't get deported so they're. They're undoing everything. Obama did on cuba to reach older hardline cuban population so i can see what they're doing in florida. If you were to tell me what he's done to improve his chances of winning michigan again i couldn't tell you really anything and one other point about this too. It was just that states move together florida to tommy's point if if the results are coming in and it looks like the democrat is winning florida. I think that augurs really well for a bunch of other states. Think wow we're performing better than we expected are performing well if it starts to look like we're not winning florida. That doesn't necessarily mean the election is over so i think that it is it is true that because of geographic polarization over the last several years there are far fewer states that are decided by just a couple of points than there used to be there used to be a lot more states that were like five points or less or ten points or less and now there's fewer of those states so that i understand that said you know we all remember that at the beginning of the general election in two thousand eight david plov sat down obama's campaign manager and said we are not going to be up on election night waiting for one or two states to come in. We're gonna have multiple paths to seventy and try to add up as many states as plain plane as many states as possible to get to seventy and i think that still wise advice right now and i think partly because there's many different democ you know we've been having this debate in the primary <hes> you know which which demographic groups to democrats need to win. They need to win back. The non college educated white voters voters in the midwest and the obama trump voters they need to increase african american turnout in some of these mid western states or should they look to the southwest and the sun belt and you know rely on moore college educated white voters and former republicans and independents and more latinos so we've been having this debate about you know which groups democrats are to go after and i think the only way to solve that debate is to try to play in as many states as you can that are still within you know the realistic scenarios scenarios here so i do think arizona which hillary only lost by three and a half points in two thousand sixteen and <hes> cures and cinema just flip flip in two thousand eighteen has to be in that map florida like you said which has been his only been within one point over the last. Maybe three or four elections obviously still on that map as well but look we were disappointed in florida in two thousand eighteen. Gilman nelson both lost so. I don't think we could see you know. I think there's a good argument to be made. Dave wasserman made this argument demint on twitter the other day that democrats win arizona before they win florida. I think north carolina is another one in there to obama one north carolina in two thousand and eight. We know there's more moore college educated white voters and african american voters especially around the research triangle that state had been trending <hes> blue for awhile democrat compete in that state as well you know right and then all of this all this also boils down to resources and part of what will determine how big the map is for the democrat and where the democrat is competing is how much money they have and how much resources they can devote. Oh two states outside of the they'll be you know the core few states where everybody will be playing and playing really hard but then it'll be you know. Can we devote money to north carolina. Should we vote money to georgia. What other states people decide to route. You in that will be based on how people are donating outside. Groups are doing how much money the the the <hes> billionaires like the coakes hoaxer draw dropping into states across the country. There's a lot of things that will determine where democrats are competing in a obviously the candidate right. I mean like castro or better rock mark. They might have a better chance of competing in texas than some of the other candidates but you know so that will go into consideration before you drop twenty million to be up on every media market in texas you you know the article was interesting. It's an important way to think about the challenge. We have ahead of us. I do think <hes> it's just too early to know the strategy. I do think i mean my ranking of states. In order of states that we could probably flip back would be michigan pennsylvania wisconsin arizona florida north carolina carolina. I think the more interesting decisions for democrats are going to be do you still play seriously in ohio and iowa which have swung pretty hard against yeah and and very big questions. Do you compete in texas and georgia now. If texas in georgia were smaller states with the populations they have you'd say yeah of course you do but the atlanta media market is very expensive and texas the most expensive of all right so those are really bets if you're gonna compete seriously there and then the other interesting thing about that piece is that you know democrats will have to play defense or the trump. Campaign is going to try to make them play defense in four states. <hes> the democrats won in two thousand sixteen new hampshire minnesota oda nevada in new mexico. I think new mexico is a little ridiculous because hillary clinton wanted by eight points but <hes> new hampshire minnesota and nevada were all decided by by a closer margin so you could see you could see democrats playing there as well. I hope they spent. I hope that trump's people spend mightily in all those other states because they have a big financial initial advantage and it makes me work. There is also by the way in in in dan pfeiffer brought this up the other day. There is such a nightmare scenario where we win back like michigan and pennsylvania. We don't win wisconsin arizona or anything else. <hes> trump wins that one district in maine again. Get the electoral vote. We win that one district in nebraska skinnier omaha to get that electoral vote and it's to sixty nine to sixty nine by the way there's other scenario. There's other scenarios to right now. <hes> the senate hinges on on a on a runoff out of georgia right 'cause isaac sends yeah so there's all there's all kinds of worse areas out there for you to ponder as you're falling asleep but but i think that's i think it goes back to the answer. Is you know democrats and the candidate and the party need as many resources as possible to play in as many states as possible and have organizations on the ground in as many of these days as possible so we are not dependent on one or two states but at least at the outset were playing on a very big map and a big field so okay when we come back my interview with david axelrod and mike murphy pods america is brought to you by squarespace priyanka.

Thanks for being here guys. Good good to be with you. Thank you back to the u._s._a. It's good to be back. It's good to be back. It doesn't seem like i missed too too much so we were just talking about <hes> <hes> that trump's lost summer story in the washington post from over the weekend ax. You remember very well how poorly the summer of twenty eleven went for obama do. Do you guys think the difference is here with trump. And what options do you think the trump campaign has to strengthen the president's position ahead of twenty twenty twenty. You know back you remember back. In the summer of two thousand and eleven i mean it was the it was the debt ceiling debacle that really pitched obama to the year of his presidency but even then his his polling number was what is trump's average <hes> which is basically it was in the low forties. It was hovering around forty forty two that that's trump has never broken fifty percent so that's one difference. Which is that was a low point. This is the average for trump. The other thing is what what murphy just said which is <hes>. I mean trump's <hes> i i. I believe increasingly that the way you beat trump. Is the trump exhaustion thing you know everybody talks about martial arts tau who's tough enough to take on trumpet. I think it's ju jitsu that is gonna be trump you using his own negative energy against him. Just the the sort of exhaustion that comes with president who divides every day who <hes> you know for profit who who who sent out these crazy ass tweets and gets into these ridiculous tantrums <hes> and gratuitous fights that produce nothing <hes> and you know just the utter chaos at range around him and i think that's going to get worse as the election approaches not better so the difference is we saw problem and and we developed a strategy to deal with it and we came out that september mid jobs speech and we never looked back. I don't think trump has that capacity. I don't think he has the capacity to find remedial strategy and execute it. Yeah i think i heard you guys talking about this on on your podcast but do you sort of think that that trump in his campaign has sort of given up on <hes> you know improving trump's political standing and basically they're hoping to just make the campaign all all about the democrat because they're only hope is to sort of depress turn out and disqualify the democratic candidate. That's my best guess. I mean the problem with being trump. Strategist is one trump hates his own strategist. He just wants to argue about invoices and to he won't listen to anybody so when you're sitting around trump headquarters watching the cable tv t._v. Feed you and you're sitting there if a bottle of whiskey and a revolver staring at the screen knowing you have very little influence to do anything about it and most of the grownups are gone to so do campaign's always do when they can't fix the big problem you focus on the little stuff oh new refrigerator magnets. You know what's the negative ads. We're going to run so i think they're going to do the easy easy. Strategy which is to try to crush the democrat and if the dams go on at least in my view <hes> complete joy reid <hes> to the progressive left to try to win two things to beat trump and get a policy agenda that is a lot more than normally in presidential elections. They're taking a have a lot of risk because they're giving trump and his campaign something to work with and one thing republican campaigns even ones of no strategy in an insane president know how to do is scare the hell <music> out of the working class in the middle class by grinding liberal democrat in the applesauce so i think that's exactly what you're going to see so i wanted to ask you about this too like how much i mean we know that voters don't choose based purely on a checklist of issue positions or ideology. You know i think to myself feels like the two thousand eighteen race you know. Cureton cinema flips arizona. She's a very moderate candidate. So there's a case there okay moderate democrat can flip a tough state but then you see someone like like tammy baldwin wins in wisconsin you know which hilary lawson and she's medicare for all shared brown's very progressive. He wins in ohio. So how much do you you think in the end and a presidential the ideology of the democrat matters to voters or do you think the person just can't it just needs to sort of present themselves else as a candidate who can sort of bring the country together well look presidential races are different than any other kind of race because you're judged and kind of three dimensional form. You know it's the m._r._i. For the whole thing that i said years ago which is people you know judge judge you <hes> not just on the basis of the policies that you espouse but also on what they see every day <hes> and so and i think that's going to be particularly important in this race against trump. I do think i want to answer your question but i just want to go back one step and and say if you or i or murphy were invited advising trump in all fairness <hes> you would say you can't win a referendum and and and and we would say very few incumbents do the fact is <hes> barack obama may not have won a referendum in two thousand and twelve <hes> but we knew it was a comparative race and we knew mitt romney would likely be the nominee and we knew given what happened with wall street and everything that we had a comparative advantage and we just i went at it a relentlessly yeah and so you know it is not it is not unprecedented for trump to want to demonize <hes> <hes> the opponent <hes> so you know but i do think <hes> if my jujitsu theory is right it is. I don't think people are going to be looking forget about the ideology for more pugilists. I think they're going to be looking for someone who <hes> who who who will not do it. Trump is done. They'll be looking for the remedy. Someone who can bring some calm and reason and empathy and humanity to the presidency and i think that <hes> that may trump all the no pun intended to all the issues stuff yeah yeah and i think this is one of the problems warren has the weather is quite ascendant and is running the best campaign every fifth word of any sentence. She'll say in front of a television camera is fighter and i agree with david that there's gonna be a huge market for huge style contrast trump. 'cause it's so damn exhausting but you know this is still a fundamental presidential race that country's has been trying to fire trump since inauguration day every special election we republicans of either done bad or awful <hes> the mid term so if the democrats democrats don't get in the way of that and teflon up rather than going kind of narcissistic and trying to make a big point about identity or progressive <hes> policy and get out of the way the country will fight trump but if they get out of the way and give trump something to work with it'll be like the romney campaign trump may be able to make it a referendum on the challenger. That's what are you. What do you think about this because you <hes> you know you guys are <hes> kind of the voice of of rest of progressivism yeah <hes> and you've been kind of you've been negative on the <hes> on the you know. Let's pick the least offensive of choices strategy. What do you think about full because i also i. I think there were two parts of the obama message right there. Was you know he would always talk about bringing people together and he would try to <hes> inspire the country and and call them to try to emphasize unity but then at the same time we always made sure that he had an economically populace us message because you know that when the people that were trying to reach in in places in the midwest and other places are feeling you know economically <unk> disadvantaged and they respond to a message about you know they respond to economic populism so in that sense i think warren's messages giving people people something to vote for in to get excited about but i do you know every once in a while. I do wonder if voters are also going to respond especially some more more of the you know sub- suburban voters of the independents that have come our way to respond to a message <hes>. That's all right. Aren't you tired of the division and and the bullshit from donald trump. Don't you want someone who can bring us together you know. I don't think it's suburbanites but i you look at the polling and trump has a real weakness this <hes> with some of the <hes> non college educated and i always hate that phrase but it's it's you know it it. It's meaningful <hes> <hes> women in rural areas. He's you know he's barely above water with them now. In terms of his approval and i think it has a lot to do his favorite but i think it has a a lot to do with that with just they can't abide him. You know not as policies they they pretty much like his policies <hes> but it is him and so i think this is a big is a big thing and <hes> you think i worry about is <hes> trump is a cultural warrior. Even economic issues are surrogate for you know for race for other kinds of cues <hes> to people people and so <hes> <hes> you know i. I do think some attention needs to be paid. One of the things you you mentioned obama. We never we we we. We were very careful about navigating these cultural issues yeah <hes> and he was very you know he he ran you know better than and many democrats do in some of these areas you wouldn't expect because he focused on the economy and these larger messages of community <hes> and and he navigated around these hot button cultural issues. Which are you know very much at the center of a lot of the democratic debate right now yeah. I guess there's like two groups of voters odors that i worry about and that i think democrats have to really think about one group is the so the obama trump voters right who voted for obama once or twice and then went to trump yep and the other group is some of these obama voters who stayed home in two thousand sixteen or voted third party in sort of larger numbers right and people voted third party the an eight and twelve and i one and those those voters tend to be younger. They tend to be people of color. They tend to be poorer and i wonder if you know a democratic candidate candidate who has gives people something to vote for that is exciting and inspiring helps. Bring some of those people out. Although i agree with you that you it's a balance right like like you need to get both groups of voters so the question is don't you think trump does that. Though the brings them would be my argument. I mean if you gotta make a bet bet on trump to drive everybody crazy because we know he's great at that. The question is how do you sliver away. Voters from trump who might be populist who bought into obama but not hillary clinton and one way is not have to send the subtext signal that if you voted for trump you're racist redneck idiot right <hes> 'cause then you just give trump something to work with so that's why the dem's need to get it better from even how they think about stopping their campaigns at attracting the voters that they have the lowest contempt for voters they need people who eat fried food and living mccomb county michigan and trump yeah aren't that woke and aren't that green you know they they've gotta go plan the other sides of the football field and their end zone and shave up you of them and they can do that but not if the campaign message you saw in colonel in the in the progressive culture that it's off pudding yeah my view you on this is i think it's less about the actual issue positions you take and it's more of a tonal message issue. You know it's how you speak to the country every single day that's probably have can i just ask you one thing <hes> about <hes> we were talking about this earlier on our own <hes> podcast <hes> bernie and and elizabeth who <hes> you know very much in contention up here with biden <hes> but also in contention with each other <hes> <hes> for a progressive votes and for the votes of young people how how does that sort itself out and if it doesn't sort itself out and both both of them have the resources to go deep into this race <hes> if they don't sort it out doesn't that <hes> further strengthen biden. Yeah i think it does i think that's i think that's one of the challenges both of them have and i think that neither one of them wants to blink on this because they both have you know bernie sort sort of has this base of people very very excited about him and obviously he's lost some support from twenty sixteen but you know that was probably a group of people who were just anti anti hillary voters than pro bernie voters but he still has this twenty something percent of <hes> of of voters with him. I don't know will leave him and then the the the challenge that warrant faces is she's competing people think it's like oh she just competing with bernie for voters but it's these college educated white liberals that she's compete with with comal harrison buddha judge and even others in the race as well and so i wonder if she can sort of enlarge that pie and i don't know if they'll i don't know what the difference like if you know if they've talked about the difference between them or they will at this debate i mean she doesn't seem like she wants to draw the contrast at the debate she said yesterday she wasn't yeah it yesterday she wore. She hinted that she wasn't going to do that. I think their view is that she doesn't have to <hes> bludgeoned bernie. She just has to outperform him right and i suspect they think if she winds up you're bernie it's time to bludgeon her. She's the butter product there and your flatlined going slightly down. She's growing every day with the superior campaign. You cannot live that equation continue on the timeline but i think the question you guys have talked talked with this too. I think the question there is not one candidate in this race has drawn a contrast really none. None of the major candidates with elizabeth warren and i wonder what bernie <music> argument against warren is. I think you can purity jay le- let we've talked about this on on tap. She has started to leave breadcrumbs from a little bit on <hes> you know medicare for all and some of that stuff i think going around purity. She used to be a republican then she was kind of a neo con and some social so policy in her book. David brooks could column on this. We talked about today so you know go wetter on the one thing. Bernie has purity. He believes every word of it does she. I asked a i on this point. I was in iowa for my c._n._n. Show and i asked <hes> them both about medicare for all and she had been roughed up the night before by a question or who was unhappy about the taking the choice of private insurance away and i said does that influence your thing and she says of course it. Does you know we're going to have to manage this transition and carefully. We need all the stakeholders at the table and son. I asked bernie same sort of question and he said you know i'll tell you it's seismic is seismic is mic his four hundred thousand people going to lose their healthcare or go bankrupt this year because they healthcare and so on and you know and he and he described his for for your transition to medicare for all eliminating private insurance and he said i don't think that's radical at all so you know i think that <hes> at the end of the day he's going to try and make the case if he makes the case <hes> that he's the real deal and she you know she is hedging edging. Yeah <hes> so you know we'll see but i think the people who make the contrast with elizabeth next week. Potentially <hes> is not bernie but other candidates dates biden perhaps but also buddha judge a harris <hes> people who are looking to carve into the less populated it'd lane the biden seems to occupy largely by himself which is this you know centre-left sort of moderate <hes> lane and <hes> if if they if those guys don't start carving out some of that turf <hes> i think they're going to get squeezed because there's not a lot of room on the left yeah in in this race so both of you have been plenty of debate prep <hes>. What advice would you be giving to joe biden right now if you're on his campaign for what to do in the next week nick. That's a great question <hes> well. I think biden the bind campaigns weaknesses. Sometimes they decide they wanna put a wall around biden right and because they're afraid of biden's biden this. They got nothing else. They ought to bottle it. It's all they have is all heart and he's all normalcy so they just need that a little romance insta- that and make a thing out of the fact that i didn't flies about that because he is the most authentic guy in the race <hes> elizabeth born stafford twenty eight figuring out those clever words pizza mckinsey consultant is here to explain why replacement for robots good idea and tone so let biden sweat bleed be biden <hes> and in and battle that and bet on it because it's all you have and so i think they need to <hes> you know he needs some discipline and how he speaks and everything but i i would. I would let joe do the naked on iraq strategy and just be joke because it's all they had so be great at it well. What do you think harry. He the <hes> you know. I i think <hes> i think john that he has to <hes> he has a theory of the case and it may be right and it may be wrong and that's theory is that the thing that unifies democrats is a fundamental desire replace donald trump and to restore a sense of decency amp ac- <hes> <hes> you know humanity to the presidency and you know i think he has to you as he has to cleave closely to that you know last time he needed to kind of spar with every candidate <hes> in order to prove that he could after the first debate <hes> but it wasn't a great look no <hes> you know and if he wants to advance his message he should lean into his message and that that is his message <hes> <hes> that <hes> he represents a return to decency you know i i don't think normalcy is necessarily the word you you wanna use <hes> because because that's a has a backward sounding kinda normal as buddha judge points out normal is not necessarily appealing everybody but <hes> decency he is empathy. Is you know and i i <hes> you know i would as much as possible. Try and run my debate against trump less against the others <hes> he may want to have a tattoo with elizabeth about <hes> medicare for all with bernie <hes> but by and large i think the more he's debating trump the better off. He is so on the other side. What advice would you be giving. One of the candidates like warren <hes> who hasn't quite made a real dent in biden's front runner status yet. I mean like you comma harass. You could argue that she had sort of short term gain from didn't really capitalize like how no one has really sort of found the message against by that really works and and then you know you're on twitter. It's like every gaffe magnified and i don't know if that's really worked against him either. So what is the message against biden for something. You're elizabeth warren you. You have the formula that's working because the only thing that's happened in the race really is you've gone up other than the early blip to kind of put pete in the race and she knows her messy. She's good at had it and i don't think she has to worry about knocking biden out and she has to beat them in iowa new hampshire when she could be on a trajectory to do so i would just do more of what i've been doing which is strength strength strength fighter fighter fighter and trying to do the pivot from the terror of the harvard faculty lounge to the fight and grandma from oklahoma and maybe a little of that but but i think there's not a lot to fix their she tactically has to say in the center of the debate and not be you know <hes> jolted bolted bhai all these other people who wish our ilk and she is now in the way any hope to have you might say a death rattle thing going on with some of the amy klobuchar and cory hookers who just haven't gotten any traction of course done a little better where they're desperately trying to break out casino. The clock is ticking so there could be some bizarro fireworks from that but <hes>. I don't think there's a lot she needs to change. I <hes> you know i agree with that. I all of although one thing i think she needs to focus on. She's done really well well. As you point out fives with <hes> you know college educated very liberal voters. She's done very well with young voters. She's vying with bernie <hes> for a lot of them she <hes> but but she hasn't broken through with a working class whites even though her message is very much geared that way and she hasn't broken through with african american voters and i think she needs to be more you know betsy from norman oklahoma than professor warren from cambridge yeah and a little more bio <hes> a little more revealing about herself. <hes> i think would be really useful here yeah yeah which she doesn't a stump very well to <hes> last question acts you. You were just in iowa talking to all the candidates for your x-files special on c._n._n. <hes> who are what surprised you there. <hes> you know i knew that warren was doing well. I was <hes>. I was even more impressed. <hes> when i got there to see see just the the the the degree of organization that she has their you know she started very early. Even earlier than obama did in two thousand and seven you know she grabbed grabbed emily parcel. Who's someone you probably remember was our political director in iowa in two thousand and seven and eight who is a or an iowa organizational. Whiz and i think she's just doing everything right. I was surprised at the i did a full like a focus group with voters and we spoke oh for an hour and joe biden's named income up until i introduced it and what i found in iowa was that people have a great deal of affection for him a a great deal of respect for him but there's not a lot of enthusiasm and i think that's a real problem in a state where you're asking people to come out on a snowy cold night in february and stand up in front of their neighbors and declare their preferences he he needs to find a way to ignite <hes> some of these voters. There's bernie has has his his his group but i was surprised also <hes> at the wing ding which is a big event up in northern iowa all the candidates attended at the amount of visibility for a kamla and footage which suggests to me that they're beginning to develop organizations since there and if there and if they can catch fire they may ultimately be able to build the infrastructure they need to make a moving iowa <hes> and you know beyond that i think the top five or the top five and it's gonna be hard for others. Booker has a great infrastructure hasn't hasn't quite caught fire there. <hes> others are lagging behind. I think you're gonna see potentially some shifting among those top five <hes> <hes>. I'd be surprised if one crazy prediction which is biden will come down not too well but new hampshire. I think he's going to get hurt. We'll probably by worn. A lot can happen in the last few weeks. There's you guys know well but if in those eight days between our eight or nine days between i win new hampshire new hampshire gives biden dramatic it comeback. He'll be the nominee <hes> if not. I think it'll be somebody else. We lose pricing. Joe biden in new hampshire is going to be the moment yeah yeah. I was thinking that too <hes> acts murphy. Thank you so much for doing this really fun. Everyone everyone goes through scribe and listened to on tap. It's <hes> it's fantastic. Thanks is john appreciate it today with you.

Who is the chair of the Department of Fast Physical Sciences at Princeton University he uses large scale imaging and spectroscopy surveys of the sky to map the universe but the particular focus on studying the large scale distribution of galaxies to address questions in cosmology and galaxy properties in evolution. He's also particularly interested in quasars powered by supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies. Welcome Michael. I'm very happy to be here. Thank you so much. Thanks for doing this so I want to start with. One of one of the papers a little bit older papers talking about costs logical parameters from SDS W map. So, you say the measure cost logical parameters using the three dimensional power spectrum from over two hundred, thousand galaxy in the slow in digital sky survey SDS says in combination with Wilkinson Microwave and isotope. He prob- W map and other data. So esky says is something from the ground and w map is something from from a I against that is correct. That is correct. And both of these. Have Produce Lot of data SPF started sometime in two thousand, two, thousand trend. Had A long tenure, twenty years with multiple upgrades to it. Ended W map sort of overlap with it between two thousand and two, thousand ten or so before Branca's satellite, kick them right after that. So we have. Two sets of data and and really kind of combining these two data. Looking at. Some of the. That are being more accepted nowadays. So talk a bit about the type of data that we got and. You know what hypotheses we could create some that. Okay. So perhaps, I can just say in general terms what the what the scientific program there is and what are. Just to try to explain how W MAPPING SDSS connected. So what s Tsn let's start with SDSS. So what SDSS? Was designed to do and did was to measure the distances and therefore well to measure what are called Red Shifts. which is a shift in the spectrum of a of a galaxy caused by the expansion of the universe. By measuring these shifts, which is straightforward. If you can measure the spectrum of of the galaxy, you can determine how far away that galaxy is and so one needs to remember that in when one looks at an astronomical image or looks at the sky in general, you're seeing everything as a as it appears in two dimensions. It's all in projection in you. Okay and if you see a star or galaxy or anything asteroid, you don't know. At first glance, which is relatively nearby, which is far away. So to get that third dimension, when needs when needs to measure? The Red Shifts and what the digital sky survey was do that on a larger scale than really had ever been done before? At the time we wrote that paper Rose Two hundred thousand galaxies that number has now. Now is is several million galaxies. And this is. This article. Yes. Yes. This is this is visible light. Light that that you're an I an hour and and my eyes can see although of course, with a large telescope, you going much much fainter than than than our is would be sensitive to So the distribution of galaxies is is, is there not just randomly sprinkled out there they formed in a large structures we call prefer to clusters of galaxies in which you know several thousand galaxies may be altogether in a relatively small volume of space large filaments of galaxies, enormous empty regions, which we call voids, which indeed have almost galaxies in them at all. And as astronomers I became aware of the fact that the galaxy distribution was so were so rich that there's so much structure. The obvious question is, why is that? What was the physical process that's that's going on? So the higher, the higher the redshift. The further away the galaxy. That is correct. And and what do you mean by Red Shifter's the light the Baid Length off the light has shifted to the. Longer wavelength. That is exactly right. So. When you measure the spectrum, which is the intensity of the light coming from a galaxy as a function of wavelength you see that spectrum has different features which turned out to be. In. The context of what we're talking about is usually due to A. By a specific elements in the atmosphere. So the stars that make up that galaxy and those features are shifted to longer wavelengths just as you said. By the expansion of the universe and it's it's not necessarily a subtle effect. Galaxies can have their You say of Galaxy has a redshift of one that means it's been shifted by one hundred percent relative to what it would be if the if there was expansion, the universe that is and and so so this is something that we can indeed measure directly a again just as you said, gibs a direct measurement of how far away that galaxies. Civility, they'll look different optically The galaxies at high redshift, for example, look different from the galaxies alot rich of. So in that in that context, what you're let me just rephrase that question you're asking the question. So let's back up slightly. Remember that if it's a very distant galaxy, I said Richard of one, for example, such a galaxy that. That light has been travelling to us for about seven billion years rough. It's it's not quite the same thing as saying that the galaxy seven billion light years away. But because of the finite speed of light, we're seeing that galaxy note as it is today but as it was in the past and so another way to ask you a question is have galaxies changed in their properties through cosmic time. And, of course, the context of that is remembering that universe's only. Put that in big air quotes only fourteen billion years old since the time of the Big Bang, which means that redshift one we're looking back at to. Roughly half. The. Current Age of the universe Okay. So you know you might imagined galaxies must have gotten started somehow and they presumably have evolved and changed over over billions of years. So the typical galaxy might see at at redshift one when the universes half of its present age will be different than than the galaxy today. So STF. Says, sorta provides a three dimensional view because using redshift can determine. They might be right. So so I've seen some sort of movies. T dementia movies that based on this. I don't know exactly which movies you've seen so I can't exactly come but but yes there are there are movies out there that you might have seen that indeed have are based on the data over sort of fly through of the distribution of galaxies, and you can see those clusters in this filaments and voids that I was making reference to before okay and and now w map data how how's that so So in a sense of what we learn about from the galaxy data is the distribution of galaxies today and then going back somewhat in cosmic history w mathis measuring. Different phase in the universe's solution, and in particular, the universe started a in hot big bang of roughly fourteen billion years ago and has been expanding ever since it's it was hot and one of the things that hot things do in general in physics anything that's hot glows gives off light. And so if the early universe was hot as people had hypothesize, then then all that all that heat should have there should be some radiation some light. Emitted from that and that was discovered that. That concept was confirmed dramatically nineteen sixty five. By serendipitous discovery by. Robert Wilson of what we now call the cosmic microwave background. Cosmic. Background. Radiation. So that is light as it were leftover from the Big Bang is a poetic way of saying. W MAP W map stamps for Wilkinson microwave and I saw probe. So microwave is the same microbes that was talking about the cosmic microwave background. Controversy is trying to measure whether there's any structure whatsoever. In the in I'm going to UC ABBREVIATION CNBC cosmic microwave background. You can ask the question the the universe is very structured. We see these clusters, these filaments, and voids. which stretch over distances of millions, where you tens of millions of light of light years. While when you measure the cosmic microwave background, you see it's incredibly smooth. And so one of the fundamental questions becomes how did an and again that is what you were seeing. There is crudely speaking the leftover light from the Big Bang it's it is a measure of what the what the universe looked like as it were at turns out. When you go through the details, it's your measuring at a time about four hundred, thousand years after the Big Bang. Go, into digression where that comes from. But in any case, you're seeing the light from four hundred thousand years after the Big Bang and the present day is is fourteen billion years later, it's quite a bit later. So the universe seemed to have been incredibly smooth back then and yet it's very structured today. So one of the fundamental questions becomes. How do we get from from there to hear are from then to now, I guess is a better way to say. And So our present understanding of that is that. That imagine you have a region of space where slightly more dense a little bit more masses associated with this region space than any other because it has a bit more mass, it has been gravitational pull and material will material meaning guests. We're not. We haven't made any stars yet Galaxies might start falling towards that and therefore increase the density a little bit more and that. So W map a Saddam new map created that CSM be. I, know that. So the plan our data since they. Just. Just improved that. That's right. Yes. What yet? So just to finish the logical. Thread we infer from the fact that the universe is very structured today that there must have been some structure at very subtle level in the cosmic microwave background, and that's what w map mission, the microwave anisotropic pro the. means the deviations from perfect smoothness. which w measured quite well, and as you said, the planck satellite of the European Space Agency just did that much better Really. Small right the different. Few Michael Kits, diff- difference of one part in one hundred thousand. So, yes. The the effective temperature the cosmic background is two point, seventy degrees Kelvin and the typical fluctuations are one part in one hundred thousand that. Yeah. So you're right it it becomes micro Kelvin. Tens of Micra Kelvin this is what's what's being measured but the amazing story is and that's and that comes back to the paper that that that you quoted is that you can put together. The measurements of the fluctuation scene in the early universe when the cosmic microwave background and the measurements of the structure from the galaxy distribution today and try to put together a single coherent picture about how the one might have evolved into the other when a statistically. With, things like the power spectrum which is. Some jargon we could we could go into. But it we can't. We now have a fairly complete understanding. Of. What the universe was like a four, four, hundred, thousand after the Big Bang and how it formed into the structures we see today and that was really the point of the paper but me just answer excite once you get me started I don't shut up. What in order to to make that connection, there are some. free parameters that you need to know about and those parameters end up being quantities like just how much dark matter is there in the universe how much dark energy which we may find ourselves. Coming back to talk about, is there in the universe, what is the expansion rate of the universe? There's a about five or six such numbers. Some of them are a little bit more a little bit more technical than those as well and those unique. To include those to to get a full picture and But the amazing story is that it really does fit together with five or six numbers. We can actually describe in a statistical way both the. CW mappin what's seen an SDSS out to really exquisite precision? So. So they're they're accepted theory today as lambda. and. And so in the paper, the parameters sort of fundamental tram-users like our hobbled constant and on. So we got all of that by SPSS and W. Map. And when the plan came in. Those. Things just with. Or? The I answered yes. Of course people. Look very very carefully to see what one of the questions is just told the story that there's this. Beautiful. Concordance. As it were between when season the cosmic microwave background and in the large-scale distribution of galaxies and. At. First scientists are always delighted when they they have a simple picture that describes everything and they work on that the air bars get smaller and smaller and they measured things ever better and everyone's happy and then some people say you know This is fun but it should be interesting to find something you and art of part of the motivation for finding something news I've already made reference to dark matter I've already made reference to dark energy Those are labels that we give to concepts that are required in the equations, and we can talk about each of those in turn, but if you really want ask The question. What what what are these things? Physically, you'd like to have more than G it all fits together beautifully, which is not yet a full explanation to okay. What is the dark matter made of what does this dark energy thing that you're talking and so astronomers have been very eager to to find chinks in the armor to find flaws in the logic or disconnect disconnects that where things don't fit. The Kazak could be pointing towards something fundamentally new and and we're we're we're never satisfied. We're never satisfied. Oh, we have a model that where we know how much dark energy there isn't much dark matter is and it all fits together and we're all happy but then. They're still basic on answer questions that the way to address the might be to to to find some some some aspects in which things don't quite fit together. Now. So the the littler understand about this Michael. So there is a general consensus that the overall proportions about seventy percent dark energy twenty, five dollars, Matt to incite percents matter that see. There's dental consensus around dead but we really don't know what you mean. Blind's. DETROIT, will dark matter of we understand better than dark energy. and. I can expand on that statement but But no, we don't if Y-. The basic question of what either of those things actually. Are. We we do not have an answer to that yet. Yeah this look dark matter a bit because I know that is one of the One of the objectives, of L., S. T. that your next and so maybe it's it's good to set the context around dark matter I know that a lot of candidates. Rims, Nino's primordial. Black, holes and so on and so. So what does our sort of current expectation that well so? One such candidates sort of everyone's favourite is that in the early universe? Our modern understanding the big bang is that various particles were created out of the the very hot the one can. Using our understanding a physics. We understand that with an high enough temperatures when can make all kinds of particles and that's where the protons, neutrons, electrons, and neutrinos and everything else came from an and maybe there was something else which is a hypothetical new particle that makes up the dark matter. And when when goes through those ideas and tries to imagine what that hypothetical particle might be there's a there's one particular strong theoretical candidate that comes out that's called a window weakly interacting massive particle, which is. It's a clever acronym but. Describes what it is weakly interacting the technical term about the kind of interactions it it has with itself with other particles. Yeah. But if if dark matter is made of wimps, we should we should there should be Williamson are streaming through us right now because there's sort of dark matter everywhere and it's weakly interacting, which is not means that it interacts at least a little bit and so. Based on that hope. People have developed. This is not my work at all people have developed very sophisticated laboratory experiments to try to detect this this stuff and have done have done. They've become in a sense of victims of their own success, which is to say that they. They sensitivities of these are getting so great that the WIMP and they haven't found anything yet that the WIMP the wimp model is starting to look. Like may not work after all and people are getting a little nervous about that it gets. Cleanest and best story of what the dark matter might be mid of and it's not working at the moment which is really really. Exciting a little scary. It says that we've maybe we're barking under some sort of wrong tree. Yea as an engineer, Michael and engineering long time ago but my intuition would have the. No of course, the theorists are infinitely Creative and are constantly coming up with new ideas. There's a whole. There's a whole story why the WIMPS are particularly compelling. But again, if it doesn't agree with what's what's experimentally Seen then then. It becomes, of course, quite a bit less compelling. And other candidates, neutrinos right at the masses of neutrinos and there's something something else that came out as hasty ascend wbz. So Astronomer, physicists have long. When when people I realized that neutrinos existed the simplest hypothesis was that there was no mass associated with these at all they were they traveled at the speed of light just like photons particles of light. But as people thought about a further, they realize there's no a party reason that they have to be massless maybe they do have some s and then. And again, the they should be created enormous numbers in the Big Bang, and then you try to ask whether they might have might there might be enough of them to create to to explain the doctor and to make a long story short neutrinos don't work for two reasons. First of all, we now know we we I mean we we do know. Now. With confidence neutrinos have mass. We don't know how much it is, but we know it's very small and with those limits on what the mess might be and then and the numbers we have a pretty good estimate of how many neutrinos that there should be. There's simply not enough to to make up the dark matter. That's that's the simplest way. To explain why why neutrinos end up not working after all Another it's another disappointment in with regard. The. Other fundamental parameter is the Hubble Yes. Hubble. Constant. And You got fair amount of precision around that does STF says in w map, and then I understand that there was another measurement from the Supernova that seem to sort of divide. So this is this is very much observe I was saying earlier that there's great excitement or there's great eagerness in the scientific community to find chinks in the armor to find discrepancies and what you're referring to exactly that so. As as Your listeners may know the Hubble constant measures the expansion rate of the universe, and there's a whole variety of different ways to do this, and the stormers have been trying to do this since the time of Hubble himself back. In the Nineteen Nineteen Thirties And now the measurements have gotten astonishingly precise and one way to to its expansion rate of the universe. It's a measure of how fast the galaxy is moving away relative to its distance. So That sounds straightforward. You measured the distance you measure how fast it's moving away from the redshift you're done. So that's one one. Approach and Many different variants on that particular theme. But crudely speaking the number that comes out and funny astronomer units is about seventy two or seventy three. When the the other way to do it is to measure measure the detailed fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background from I still being map, and now you mentioned the the planck satellite which has made more precise measurements, and that gives you slightly more indirectly a measure of expansion rate of the universe and when you go through that in the same funny units, the number comes out to be seven. So sixty seven versus seventy, three ish, and then everyone just starts arguing and so is someone made mistakes mistake or systematic error. What happens if we use other measurement that gets a seventy one instead of seventy three. At the moment, it looks like real discrepancy which has gotten people all excited again because it says, this is you know we were getting a little bored by just how beautifully everything was putting together. We need we need something to give us a new handle on something we we really wanted to discover something fundamentally new rather than. Just just see it off it beautifully with A. Couple of weeks ago Mike Somebody has said he used to be. One. Hundred. Seventy five sorta work now, we are really worried about. Seventy three dollars go. Yeah. When I was a graduate student, I'm not old enough. I can say that when I was a graduate student indeed. Versus hundred. Were the values over which people battled and but with enormous uncertainties and and now. Now, these two quite different ways of measuring are getting. What seemed to be statistically significant differences in again where whether so of course, again, the theorists are having a field day and inventing. All kinds of interesting mechanisms by which you could get this discrepancy new new kinds of physics than that might possibly explain, right So that brings us to. In Utah Roy that's being built. The Large Synopsis Stop You right there and say it has changed its name. The paper I gave you. Just, published just before the name change. So by by Congressional decree actually the US Congress. This was renamed to the Virus Ruben Observatory. Legacy survey of space in time. because. Large synoptic survey telescope. No one knew what snap Dick Meant and anyway there's a variety of problems with that ole title but So various see Ruben As you probably know she was breaking astronomer just passed away. Five years ago something like that who? Many wonderful things in astronomy. But one of them is that she really she looked at the rotations what's called the rotation curves of galaxies, the way galaxy rotation and came up with the most solid evidence Today that galaxies are are dominated by dark matter the most most of the mass of galaxies in the form of dark matter and so the So this. Observatory Yep. This something is being is being built in Chile frustratingly like so many other aspects of our lives, the construction actually temporarily halted because of of covid nineteen. but but. things are improving the health situation. She lays improving him I. I just heard and things should start up again soon. So I don't know the geog. Michael I know that other things that other things being bitten Julius. Further further north yes. Chile. Is is well first of all. One of the most beautiful countries in the world is one of my favorite places took to go. It's completely north-south country. It's a very, very long and skinny. Any country in. The two thousand can't remember if it's two thousand kilometers of two thousand miles long. Should know that But You know on on. On the western side of course is the Pacific Ocean. These side is defined by the Andes Mountains and. And the northern parts of Chile are are dry. Extraordinarily, dry northern parts of the Tacoma desert where you mentioned the Simon's observatory, for example, So that combination of mountainous close to ocean in very very dry conditions makes it really one of the best places in the world to do astronomy and so many of the next generation large or current and next generation large facilities telescopic facilities are being built. In Chile. and. Southern, fit. So. When you're an astronomer and you working from the Earth as you as you question hints, you can you can't see the entire sky. There's parts of this guy there hidden beneath your feet and will be no matter no matter how the earth turns So. When when S. T. The Ruben Observatory when we were first having the discussions of where to build it. That was one of the questions that she would be more important in the Northern Hemisphere, the Southern Hemisphere, and after much discussion we decided that what we need to do is find the best site in terms of its weather. How many clear nights it has an others, such things, and that was more important than than agonizing over whether the northern half of the sky. This other never this guy was was was more fundamentally interesting. You can make strong arguments in both directions. So. So what it will do it it it it takes pictures. That's all it does. It takes pictures. It does we're talking about spectrum before. That's not something that the. Rhythms of a toy will do but what it will do is it will be. of a particularly large telescope. So when people talk about the size of the of telescope the things that care about. Collecting area, how large the mirror the primary mirrors and that mirrors about eight and a half meters across a point four meters I think is the official number. and the other aspect of it is that you want to be able to take a picture of large swath of skype. At, once the what's called the field of view of the telescope and Ellison t the Victory will have the largest combination of. Of Primary Mirror size and field of view of of any telescope in the world by by. By large factor. So it's particularly well suited for the mapping. Of just taking pictures of everything that's there the large. The large size of the primary mirror means it's tremendously sensitive to very faint objects large field of view to get a lot of objects at once. Her. Engineering. Challenge obviously eight point four meters. Ya. Indict. The Primary Mirror. And a camera. That's right. That's right. And so so the the project style goodness. I I heard of the first inklings. The project that I heard of was the late nineteen ninety s Tony. Tyson. who was at the time at Bell Labs here, New Jersey. It's now at UC University of California. Davis. was was starting to think think about this. And but it really started taking off becoming serious project in the in the two thousands and it was formally approved. By the National Science Foundation saying, yes were we're going to put money into this in two thousand fourteen? And it's also says if you could describe a little bit sort of the operations and. As you said, three point two Giga pixels, which means that every time you take a picture. which we will do every thirty seconds. For fourteen years straight or at least when the sun is down for ten years straight. We will have a picture of with three point, two Giga pixels that's covering. An area. Remember these numbers Approaching Forty Times the area of the full moon. And if I? Did the arithmetic in my head correctly and and so what what one can do with that is is you can take pictures of the sky and we all love looking at astronaut Michael Pictures but we can take pictures of the sky and then we can do it again and then we can do it again and we do it again. So why do you? Keep on doing they say I've got a picture what what more detail the first thing that you do is you had the interest together and so you get an effective exposure time that will be that will be much longer and you can see see very much much fainter stars, galaxies but the other thing that you then become sensitive to is everything that's changing you can. So we're used to thinking of the the skies, the heavens as being static as changing on timescales much longer than any human lifetime. But that is the story is far more interesting than that. First of all the things that move stars can be seen to be moving across the sky very slowly. But if you measure carefully enough over long period of time, you can measure that you can measure asteroids within our own solar system and the Reuven Observatory will discover I. Don't remember the number but millions millions of of asteroids over over its lifetime and. That's important. Dot Dinosaur. Well. This is an interesting question I. Mean we one of the scientific motivation to ask the question? Is there an asteroid with our name on one that's going to collide with the earth and the way you find out is by cataloging as as? As many Astra's as you can find them figuring out there bitten and asking the question. Whether anyone has any any of the most likely to collide with us So that is certainly one of the things Yup then you take. So, then you take the pictures micro so Different. That you're using. So yes, by combining the different filters, you basically can make a color color picture and their. their six filters ranging a over. This is a visible light telescopes ranges from the bluest shortest wavelengths light that that the Earth's atmosphere transmits below which the ozone layer cut you off and goes to the longest wavelengths that the kind of detectors that were using. use if you it's what astronomers call the. Optical range beyond which the technology for the detectors at the change So we we are we we will take images in six different filters, and with that, you can not just make pretty color pictures of course, which we will do, but also measure very precisely. The relative brightness in the different filters gives you till about the the physical nature of the objects that we're looking at the stars, the galaxies, the asteroids, and everything else. Is just bouncing around the sky Indeed one of the things that the telescope has been designed to do is is move very quickly for exactly that reason, you don't want to spend all your time sloughing. That's the jargon that we use from one region the sky to another you you'd like to spend as much time actually taking exposures and as little as time is. Going in transition from one to the other because that's sort of wasted time as it were so telescope. Yeah. Go ahead. Making. Goods. Making mystically. It's all robotics, right so it is basically the on. Well. So you have to, of course, program that robot rather carefully. So indeed, there's a great deal of discussion which. About sort of two levels of of questions. One is the one that you hint hit into that. You know the the night the sun has just gone down. Let's the telescope and start exposing and you definitely you definitely have programmed in. Here's the program for tonight, we're going to observe this field and then go slow over to this field and this one and It's thirty seconds of Papas is this is the is the standard Operations that were planning to and so yes, there is an algorithm that says, okay. Let's try to cover the sky this way through the night There's a broader an interesting conversation about. Okay. You have six different filter filters for every exposure. You have to decide which one you have this idea in the back of your mind that you want to see things change but you also have this idea that you'd really like to measure the sky with as much sensitivity as possible and. And you know the asteroids are moving quickly and the stars moving slowly and maybe a Supernova will explode and you'd like to be sensitive to that. How do you design your? Survey to maximize your ability to do all that science we went through an exercise. Now over ten years ago where we tried to tabulate or basically wrote a book. Listing all the signs that could be done, and basically every paragraph of this book was a PhD thesis or Chris Potential PhD thesis and the book was six hundred pages long and and that was civil ten years ago if we were to do it again of probably end up being twice as long. So that is there's a huge range of different science that can be done. I mentioned the asteroids large-scale structure of the universe that we talked about before the most distant galaxies and quasars and everything in between, and we find ourselves wanting wanting to do the science. We wanted to have it all again, we're astronomers are tend to be very greedy and and and say you know and so much discussion of well with the optimized the survey to make this science. Particularly Powerful, are we gonNA second be at the expense of our asteroid science or something else like that, and so coming up with that balances? Subject of much discussion that we're having a lot a lot of fun. It's Optimization problem by. Short. One. Is You GotTa let me make a statement can cut me. One issue with being prescriptive though is that the bringing of status biases that's Right. So Lupino astronomers were used are used to this challenge you know. A colleague of mine has a Mug that says something like I unconscious. Of the unexpected or something like that and so you know part of the spirit of this is that Well, first of all, we can allow ourselves flexibility to to change our mind about how we're gonna how we carry out the observations if if if we see compelling reasons to do so but you know what astronomers do they take these series picture these series of pictures and we keep everything. you may contrast that with particle physicist who have enormous accelerators where they bang protons together and it turns out that there's so much information that comes out of this collision they have no choice but to throw away ninety, nine, point, nine, nine. Nine. percent of the data before. Simply cannot. Possibly keep up with. So they have snuck, it has built into the hardware filters to just look for the things that they're looking for, and so when astronomer here is that they shut her because they know we are so ignorant about what's out there in the universe that we don't want to throw in throat anything a priori and sort of keep everything. going. Of Keep every bit of data that we can. Yeah. So these Yeah, these numbers have quite quite striking. So it says that I don't know if I got this right thirty, two, trillion wage detrimental in about. Numbers of starts this right? So you're talking about something like he's. Only twenty, two, twenty terabytes two. Thousand. Twenty therapy you. At least the first incarnation of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey was a few tens of terabytes. We illnesses table basically get that quantity of data. Every night. In the Ruben Observatory. So so yes, and the end of the survey you keep that for ten years at adds up pretty quickly and at the end of the survey, the numbers are tens of Peta Bites close to one hundred terabytes So. Yep. So is it coming back to the yes? Yes. Yes. So as we just said the telescopes, the Chilean Andes but yes, we'll be we'll be piped in real time through a network that goes through for Brazil and then into. floor the. Than into. into the United States and. So yes, the the majority of the processing will actually happen physically you might states. That's right. Okay and so so so what do you hope to find here Michael Assuming that the expression goes yo you get consevative what are the? What are the specific areas that that you believe will will one of the questions is the one that we were talking about before namely this. Dark. Matter Dark Energy Question certainly one one of them in one of the key themes that the Ruben Observatory is really designed. To address and. One of the ways it does that is to. You know we talk about dark matter of one of the problems with dark matter is by it's by by definition by by its very name it is not something that we can see directly and so you say, how can we learn about dark matter by taking pictures well turns out as unsigned. Showed that matter can bend light. So if you have dark matter clumpy dark matter dark matter gravitates pulls together gravitationally it will be imagine a clump of matter in the galaxy beyond that clump somewhere the that the light from that Galaxy, we'll get bent and therefore distorted by that lump of dark matter and and this is an effect that that's that's measurable. The shapes of galaxies are systematically distorted by the distribution of dark matter that's out there, and we can measure that statistically in the the current surveys are now just starting to begin to do this and and Reuben Observatory is really designed to do this. On, on the large scale with with exquisite precision so this will give us a map now, not just where the galaxies were, which is kind of what we were talking about earlier. but where the dark matter is and how the dark matters distributed and that then gives you. Additional constraints on what the physical nature the dark matter is. It turns out the dark energy also turns out to be important. In all of this and it all becomes very exciting that way. So, is it is it because So so we can get some idea of the movement. In this in the context of a basically what we remember it was talking before about trying to put together a coherent picture. Of how the structure in the universe today is related to the what you see in the cosmic microwave background. What this will allow us to do is what we see what what we did with the Sloan digital sky surveys look at the distribution of galaxies, but I just said that. Galaxies represents most of the massive galaxies is a dark matter and you really want to know what the matters doing. The galaxies are almost an afterthought and it's the after thought that we can see which is what we've used but by measuring. The distribution of dark matter we can sort of measure more directly the quantity the thing that that at least in terms of the formation of structure in the universe the thing that. Counts more and. So this and and we can do this as a function of cosmic time. Because again we can We can look at different distances in the universe and that's referring to different different times in cosmic history. So we can ask the question. How did the dark matter? Clump together as a function of time and that gives. Has the potential to give us fundamental new insights? And so so we get. distributed. Brevity Nitro you actually use that term when I was describing this this spending applied but yes, this is gravitational lensing, which again is in effect. I. Predicted by Einstein it's a it's an outcome of his general theory of relativity. Famously for the change in the position of of stars during a solar eclipse but then. Seen in a in the context of galaxies only in the first scene in the late nineteen seventies and has become a growth industry in our field ever since. and. That will give you mentioned sort of getting inventory or the solar system. Planet. Yes. Important. Yeah. So people are excited about whether there might be another. Significantly. Massive planet like object I have to use my terms carefully. The Outer Solar System Beyond the orbit of Pluto. As as you know, Pluto, itself is the least massive of all. More less than any of the the planets that we usually refer to it, and and indeed there are several other objects seen in the outer solar system with comparable masses but there is indirect. Evidence. which I am eighty percent convinced by at this point. That there is there's a significantly more massive object quite a bit for the away. This is the planet nine that you are from which is which which made headlines. We haven't actually found it yet. There's this quite indirect evidence that it that it might exist out there Could. This couldn't Ruben Observatory find perhaps others are looking. It turns out knowing the sky is a big place in knowing where to look as this. Is Not easy. And if if it happens to be a place in its orbit that is incredibly of sufficiently far away it will be below the sensitivity of even the Rupin Observatory so there's no there's no guarantee of success whatsoever, but it would be truly setting discovery. There was some speculation. Mike. I don't know if this. I saw that was. That was A. Speculation I think is a fine word. I mean sure why not let of like. I'm not sure I have much until the. Together. But this is a good segue into quasars. And this is radio of great interest for you. So slightly seeing some pictures in the eighties that this doesn't train shed that come out of these these things. I. Remember maybe I'm I couldn't quite remember, but they used to be called quasars and then they used to call wizards long term I use. People use those to two terms to change a blade. The history is. Stanford quasi stellar object, which is which is referring to the fact that when they were first discovered. People remark that if you just take a picture of them, it just looks like a dot just like a star does in in a in an astronaut imaging and yet it wasn't a star. So dust quakers quasi stellar objects really and. Then it got shortened. To, quasars and that's the term that that I like. Y- Yes I. Think. It's easier. It's easier to say. So our current understanding is that well one of the. Well, let's back up just a little bit The Nobel Prize announced two weeks ago in physics was given to a Andrea says and reinhard. Gansel, for their observations of Stars in the vicinity of the very center of our own Milky Way? Proving. Beyond any doubt that that there is a as what we call a supermassive black hole four million times more massive than the Sun at the center of the Milky Way and So that the our own Milky Way Galaxy is not unique. In fact, as far as we can tell, Gal Galaxies essentially all galaxies, all massive galaxies sufficiently large galaxies have a supermassive black hole. In their center so Any questions come up and say, well. Where did that come from? How does it get? They're out to get started And one the next question to ask is it okay. If there's a supermassive black hole there what happens when something wanders too close to it. So black holes famously. Once, you cross the event horizon you're never escaping again. So black holes in practice can only grow in Mass you're. So, a QUASAR. QUASAR. Is A supermassive black hole in the center of a galaxy into which material is actively falling. It wants it falls all the way in it's gone. We don't see any. There's nothing further to see but on the way in, it's not going to go straight in on a radio. Radio Straight in it's it's more likely tend up in orbit around that black hole, and if we're talking about gas moving in right under the extreme gravity of the black hole, that gas could be moving enormously fast and friction viscosity in what's called an accretion disk that forms around a black hole. Causes it to heat up and glow. So paradoxically, a black hole, which is by definition sort of let's that's the ultimate dark matter. There's nothing to see but in its vicinity things. Astonishingly brightly and indeed that's that is our current understanding of what the quiz. Is. So so I used to think that cases are. Sort of long ago. So you have to look back in time we'll to black holes. Once. So the other thing to say is that. When we're seeing a QUASAR as I said. It's the process of material falling into the black hole. So we're watching the black hole grow, which is to say, this is probably the mechanism by which the supermassive black hole in our own Milky Way. Grew. So our our own Milky Way was probably quasar sometime in the past. most galaxies today have. Black Holes That is the material is not actively falling into them right now and they're sort of just sitting there, and when has to work a little harder to to infer the presence But but you're right the majority of the quasars the time in the universe win win mid most most black holes. Gain, most of their mass and we're shining quasars was indeed. In. In in the what's sometimes called cosmic new when the universe was probably three or two to three to four billion years old impaired to the fourteen billion years old and so yes quasars in the nearby University of recent universe. Quite rare. But they're quite a bit more common. When we look at high riches. And so supply understand it's be Michael. So don't be know that there are massive black holes in most of the reasonably sized galaxy centers, but we don't see the will not be just some of the some of the nearby. Black holes do have jets but you were in in order to get the jets you need the material falling him okay. Yeah. So any any supermassive black hole if that appreciable amount of material. Yes. So there's two different. That is related things that we've just talked about one is that's the material falls in it goes in orbit around the black hole forms called an accretion discs. So the mental picture you WanNa have. This black ball that represents the black hole itself and a sort of a dinner plate around it or Frisbee. I'm trying to draw mental immature, which is the Christian does the jets come out are are are due to Strong magnetic fields that thread that Frisbee or accretion disk that I've talked about that comes out of perpendicular to your Frisbee there and whether that happens in every case or not is unclear in fact. Many quasars are shining very brightly and don't don't have any obvious sign of of jets. So it's it's not it's not a universal connection and probably quasars go through different phases in different parts of their life cycle if I can use that. That that term when they might have jets and other times, they may not and those are some of the questions fundamental questions we find ourselves at the. Department of Research. Yeah Yeah I remember. Like I mentioned I remember seeing the pictures and was by. These. Tens of millions. Hundreds of millions. That's that's really big. But. Even tens of it's quite clear if. You can actually have services incredible. So. In conclusion, do I want to return to in again? So you've been intimately involved. Two or three years again, Kovic have slowed things down like so many things in our lives at the official date has been October twenty twenty two to start a ten year survey of this project of of mapping the have heavens, and that will probably be delayed by some amount and there's much discussion about exactly how to how to do that But but yes. So. So if you look forward ten years, Michael What what what do you think? Let, me ask the Diffley us. So be so wonderful things about astronomy. Is. How bad we are at answering that question which is to say we've constantly been surprised. You could you. You can go through the mental exercise of going back ten years or twenty years and imagining asking. Yourself versions of that question and an each case he would be wildly wrong about what the most exciting things to happen are astronomy really is a field in which we we are. We are imaginations have been have been rather poor in in guessing at the most exciting things might be. So you know if you ask what? Have we done this ten years ago we would have. Only a handful of people would have imagined that we'd be finding colliding black holes with a lie go through gravitational waves, for example, and that that is just a you know one of the most exciting developments go go back thirty years ago known known was really T- talking seriously about black holes in the centers of gallons or the fact that planets existed and other stars or that the universe expansion is accelerating just to talk about some of some of the most exciting things that have happened in my astronomical lifetime. So. So you know I. I could tell some story about. Dark dark energy dark matter. But but you know I suspect ten years from now. We'll look back and say. Boy were we naive back there we'll just completely missed the point or this discovery. Field and and and is really have really. Rock the foundations and and again it's up to our imagination to come up with what that might be me. Yeah Yeah. I was thinking very pro. If Asteroid Caddick for. That would be very good. Excellent excellent yeah. enjoyed. Spending time. Thank you. But This is a scientific sense podcast providing unscripted conversations with leading academics and researchers on a variety of topics.

Fart On My Doritos

"Exists wednesday july fourteen. Twenty twenty one coming up on the program today. What the woman takes a dumb plus. The delicious taste of farted on doritos. Satan needs corrective cosmetic surgery in which letter of the alphabet is a white supremacist. Find out today on this stereo was like the sound of so. He started his own. Show the come. And now he had scared's clyde guys bluish. A new was three founding guy. Rain is nasty. da l. Now see their start. My whole new away one vantage than scads. There was stuck up by seeing john star on her z squared. Aol the distorted view. Show with tim hansen. Come jurors jerry. Bushy doctor wants to dilate fight. Asshole branca's negro face cookie dimension back here with you for the wednesday's show got a good one for you today. There seems to be a backlash against marvel movies and tv shows. I love these things. I don't care that. They're not doing a new film cinema for the intellectual elites what i rather watch for kicking ass or some frilly european period piece about a family of depressed french beret makers coming to terms with the suicide of their child because like he was in love with the town's cheese master's daughter something you know. One of those taboo loves simply cannot lay bare with cheese farmer. Hitches forbidden lajja de la more shop the day the had died coming soon to that one weird cinema in town that only has like one screen like one tiny screen three rows of seating and yet it's never full in there. I've seen a few of those movies. Anyway i get it. Marvel is a huge machine. And they're churning. Out these blockbusters they're probably a bit formulaic. But like why can't dc movies seem to do well. They got cool. Superheroes batman superman wonder woman aquaman and really they're the same stories. Dc movies just kind end up being the the asylum version of marvel movies that company the asylum. They take what what movies are popular like. They're like independence. Day was coming out. You know that movie with will smith with their the aliens. Attacking is island would quickly turn around and produce a movie that is basically the same plot. It just takes place during a different holiday. The world will never be the same when martians attack on national pancake day like could pick something memorial day or is on and took a lactic attack on shoelace appreciation day alien. The twist of the movie is that aliens are pissed because they can't figure out how to tie shoes because they only have three fingers. The big reveal is like seventy minutes into the movie when the pans down to the aliens. Veep and you see them all wearing velcro shoes. That's the caliber of moving. The asylum produces these movies. Just aren't as fun as marvel movies. And they're very blue slash gray all that tint to Just fucking depressing. Now if you are a dc comic book fan and you've been disappointed by their movie offerings and you're sick of marvel movies coming out every fucking three months and making a billion dollars each. I think i have some good news for you. There apparently is a new wonder woman movie. I was not aware of this. I'll thanks goes to dr cock ditch. Md because he's a film critic think maybe he writes for the new york times. I may have seen some of his film reviews. Actually name sounds familiar. Actually dr kaku ditch. Amdi is in the discord and he provided a link to the film Now you can't watch this on like hbo max or netflix's he got to go to What's the streaming service here x. Videos dot com. Yes times wonder woman. Come back to this. One woman tired about sides riding horses and just just in need of something. Now that's definitely that Good joe right. I can recognize her accent. A little thicker in this video. But she's saying. Look when. I get home from battle. My ashes sore ryan. The horses wants to relax man secret. Yeah she's pulling out Not her golden lasso instead. It appears she's taking out a diaper member when she said her ass was not kidding. She met literally know that sometimes when i traveled a lot. What you're saying wonder woman. I can't go to the bathroom. And so dis somebo many many. I feel like this should be included in the geneva convention. Every four or five hours there should be a break in the fighting that we can all hissar shit and get back on the battlefield and be our best. You know how it is when you have to be real bad. That's the only thing you can think about or wonder woman. Here is dropping loads inner panties. How undignified for a superhero tangled. This look i don't want any of you. Weird perverted sex freaks to get the wrong idea of what wonder woman is saying here. She's not getting off to wearing diapers. All comic book fans know that that happens to be wonder woman's catchphrase like judge dredd screaming. I am the law or captain. America saying avengers assemble when wonder woman jumps into a fight. She says it's time for have some good time with this. You know it gets her psyched up and more importantly it confuses her opponent wait. What did you say it's time for. Have some good time with the low. They don't even see that she's you know preparing her attack. It's called the element of surprise. Look it up though. She's putting her diaper on and now she's showing it off. She's doing more than showing it off. Okay she she's using it. That's that's definitely paid. No these heavy like a battle while she's so wise. She's slapping her diaper which is full of urine diapers going to get a little more heavy. Well I i will say this is bringing something different to the table. Quite a departure from the marvel movies. I like their new direction. Quite frankly thank you so much Dr cock ditch md. Sharing this video with me. I in reality. This woman does a lot of role play videos. Here she is. She's pretending to be a mother critise talking to her son. It sound believable. You calm into s much times last night you call tonight. S much times and now word. Jeez attempting to say is bloated and the title of the video is came so many times in my anus. The result is a swollen belly. Yes you kumon calm. And now i scenes nine didn't can use my anti-us. Your belly is huge. Although i'd be more concerned with the fact that you just indicated that your son impregnated you you're gonna have a mongoloid child. This is inbreeding. What it is. I mean i know he came in her ass over and over. But you know come in my great it can drip out of the crack ultimately for some reason. I'm not upset over what appears to be a mom raping sunshine. I think it has something to do with the soothing. Music being played in the background. It's like pure moods my son and he come in my ass over and over. He make my belly so four. Geez i start the burping it up indigestion and i i start to gag and puke up the come. 'cause he fills me up. So much with these loads. This is what my son due to me last night. He calm and calm and calm. And i started spilling all the come out of my holes and i just want more. Bc's my son. He good boy. I like a tea kettle. The communist bubbling in my body is ready ready to be part out. Yes okay. I shit out to come and i don copy skiing the common i e it. Yes it's a nice to meet day. Snack lady is producing some very interesting niche content. All another person. I have to thank in the discord. Is vlad vlad submitted a video featuring a mashup of marshall mathers both marshall mathers. I'm talking about eminem and the utah that goes by the name. Marshall mathers the fourth who is hopelessly single and always desperately sad. So here's a little mash up between the two m's if we're in the bath together i would definitely absolutely loved a girl to be able to pee in the bath while we're together. I mean i would just love land also when it comes to also burping and farting would like. Let's say i had like chips or bag of cereal or something if she were to like bourbon bag ships. Roll it up in a bag of chips rolls up and and i would still eat that shit. Talk about specific fetish. I want a girl too far into a bag of chips that i will then inhale and eat. I mean i swear to god. And i would even wanting more since it would have like the remaining center for yes smart essence same. With if i'm eating food. I would just love her randomly to buy food regardless of what i'm eating or had some sexy stink too and even her own food and i would be awesome if i were able to get with the girl. Who's maybe insight you turn on by her own functions. I mean that would literally jamir call honest to god miracle flat out a party miracle. Let's get it's sexy way. Visit video is twenty six minutes long and it spans multiple eminem songs. I'm gonna provide a link on the show notes today. Because i feel like this video needs more attention it's only received a thousand views by Some username mortal kombat. Here's a little more fast forward at a few minutes when it comes through. We'll pooping on the. I'm just simply turned on by the look of it and the smell of it's coming out of rain turned on bounty so much and i mean also my gene girl would also be a girl who would herpin my ears. I mean we we get the idea. Thank you marshall mathers. I also have a great white woman freak. I guess you would call this a care and care and freak out. Although i don't know a lot of back story i'm always suspicious when the camera starts recording at the moment of the attack. I'm like what led up to this. I mean there is a rational explanation in that. Most people aren't recording at all times. You wait until there's a reason to start recording and if someone's about about to attack you you're going to record but i don't know what this fight is about especially one that takes place in the checkout lane of victoria secret. The black lady is actually. She's had victoria's secret. I think we later find out. She has a coupon for some free panties. Which is not a bad coupon man. I'd totally truck it down to victoria. Secret for some free undies. Anyway there's a white woman here who's very agitated. The film starts with her about ready to charge at the black woman. I don't think whitey here knows she's being film at least not at first. Not issue you natalie. Now the white woman is crying. She i think because you realize that she's on film. Oh my god. I never thought nothing like this. What happened to me. She just tried to run it. Hit me right here. Caught on video and there are customers in people all around. I had a breakdown. She tried to show where. It's so funny because there are people in line that you know. The cashiers are helping other people. Check out is really getting involved with this. They're all just sort of ignoring the situation. Thought about that before. Feel real feel real. Ask security heat. She charged would wanna security for me right. I was i want you to. I just came to get my free pan. You might get the coupon in the these from northbound. I don't know what is this now. This video is three minutes in length there. Then there are seven more videos like part part one through seven and you just get the idea that a the black woman here is is just continuing to film to antagonize the why lady. Because nothing's happening at this. The woman the white woman is basically in the fetal position on the floor. She's she's no danger to you. At this point. All the employees have seen. She did come in charge at the black leader. I don't know why though why just going through some shit right now mental breakdown. Why don't you walk away from me. No i was here. No no no no. We're not doing this. Why don't i walk away from her. Why don't you get away from me. She gonna waste you wanna go. This is crazy. I mean she could walk away from the white woman right but on the other hand like i always try to look at like both sides like i was here. I this white ladies attacking me. I want my god damn pennies. I leaving deescalate the situation. But why should i have to just wipe bitch leave. But she's up off the floor. Oh wait no. She's coming back down. she's going back down. She is now is like she collapsed. She's fake fainting. You know if you fate you fall on the floor quickly. This woman did it like it's slow motion. I'm looking through the videos here. There's actually eight parts of the video but some of these are relatively short like under a minute like this one's fifty two seconds apart three right. Now that's where the security guard gets involved. And i think we saw here at least the black woman's side of the story. I was looking at the. You can ask the workers. I was over here looking at the The sale items social came back and she put up. She came back and she put an item back in front of me. So if you put the item back in front of me. She begins given the calls like right in my face. I said excuse me that she just completely went over to them. Ask them to secaucus security when all she dropped on the floor. She screamed she. She loves well. I don't know exactly right now. We don't know. I feel endanger. No everything's not okay them. She chased me at excuse. Me man you know. It's interesting because like i understand this lack woman's frustrated but then the police come and then a security guard is like. I can escort you out of the store if you'd like if you don't feel safe and then then she's like well. Why do i have to be escort it out. Why isn't the white chicken escorted and it's like well. You said you were feeling threatened. So we're just trying to you know if you need to leave. If you feel like you're in danger we can escorts you. Make sure that you're not attacked again. But then the bike woman's like well you should just kick the white bitch out looking through some of the other videos. I mean the the reason why there are a part is because we really do follow. This woman from victoria's secret to the police station where she files a report on this crazy. White count here's part two where the white woman is still on the floor screaming and threatening you. So i'm recording to protect myself. I mean you could understand why she would be recording your acting a little nutty. Keep an eye on threatening you. I'm recording to protect myself. Everyone your really just okay now. She's making a huge ass. Fucking seen just kicked fucking out the white pitch out. The white woman is screaming. Get her far away from me. But it's more like but either the women's like far away from her she's filming through a display like she's she's probably like eight feet back blows and there's like a rack of soaps and stuff dividing the till. It's not like the charging at her. The white woman is the one who did the charging in the first place. Crazy lady she attack attack. You cut the look. She's running again ladies chasing her through the store now like that. She's laughing by the way. This lady has set up a gofundme page for her legal fees. Because she's going to have to hire lawyer and she is going to go. After this white kant she was looking to raise twenty thousand dollars. The gofundme page was created just a day ago. It has already exceeded the goal earlier today. I checked in. It was at like thirty thousand dollars now just a few hours later. Were up to sixty five thousand. Oh she's going to get herself good lawyers. It is a little concerning here. Because i was wondering who she was going to sue. I assumed it was the white chick. But it sounds like She wants to sue everyone. She says i've been wronged by the a karen. In the video. The short hills mall security milburn. Police department and most of all humanity. She might be looking to sue every single white person in america. We better start lawyering up ourselves. We're in trouble all right. Let's get into the crazy bizarre twisted.

All right Three very quick stories now for a heavily tattooed body modification addict dubbed the human satan seating way satan. Maybe going away if he doesn't get some surgery. Ace app yes. He suffered complications following corrective surgery. Now he's going to have to undergo more operations. Which is kind of ironic. Don't you think no no. She doesn't even know what the word means. Not gonna let her sing about it to me. It's kind kinda funny though. Because this guy's pretty much addicted to surgery. Something went horribly wrong and he had to go in for corrective surgery. And that's been botched. Now he asked to have corrective surgery on the corrective surgery. I wonder if he secretly excited about it. He's like oh goody. I get to go under the knife again. Michael farrow proto of brazil underwent liposuction. Which is like the all cosmetic surgeries. Right i'll maybe lip villa. But that's not really a major cosmetic surgery. That's kind of like an outpatient thing you know. Get the big blown up pillow lips anyway. He underwent liposuction and tummy. Tuck in march. I hate that we call it a tummy. Tuck when a when a guy gets it. I mean it just sounds so feminine. You know it. don't get me wrong. I would totally get one. If if it was offered to me. i could afford it. I wanna get some fucking fat sucked out on my stomach. I just don't want to have to call it. A tummy tuck. He had excess skin even his belly. Button remove well. There's your problem. He's doing screw. You should like that. What doctor is going to okay. That procedure shady ass doctors and shady ass doctors. They're the ones that leave stuff inside of you after the surgery like we sold your back up now. I can't find my cell phone. The tattoo artists said he recovered well but notice. There was still a little excess skin left behind. So you had corrective surgery on june twenty eighth so it wasn't like real corrective surgery. I still fat. I wanna look even more skinny The man says he's in pain and he cannot move around the underwent surgery on july eighth as his fifteen point seven inch long open. Wound may be infected. What i feel like the new story skipped over important part here. The days went by apparently and his stitching began to open. Let's be honest. This guy has so many surgeries. He thinks he's like a pro at it now so instead of resting he was probably out and about doing shit he should and he ripped he tore open. His stitches stitches began opening. That's according to his wife. Carol such a pedestrian name for someone. Who's a freak mary to another freak anyway carol who also had a number of body modifications and is dubbed the demon s. Did they livestream on social media to ask for donations from the public to pay for the procedure. Everyone has a gofundme me. This will be carried out at a private hospital at an undisclosed date. She managed to raise nearly five hundred dollars to pay for her husband's operation in under twenty four hours do have been married for ten years on the man's body modifications include horns implanted in his forehead. Teeing the removal of part of his nose Also they removed part of his ears and even his ring finger and the addition of silver dentures. Eighty five percent of his body is tattooed despite his devilish appearance which you can see in the chapter artwork. He recently admitted that he believes in god. He's a devout christian. He's going on tour. He's going to be street preaching with angela. Cummings around the world. Michael is an extreme example of tattooing. Such inking has gone mainstream. For instance. Thirty six percent of us citizens have at least one to seventy two percent of tattooed. Adults have tattoos that are hidden by their clothing. Doing is the sixth fastest growing american industry. And there are twenty one thousand tattoo parlors in the us. You're wondering about the cost. Yeah how much do tattoos cause. Large tattoos cost around one hundred and fifty dollars an hour of work. I'll the small ones cost around. Forty five but i really want to know is how much money in total has. This guy spent on body modification. Gotta be half a mil right. Hundreds of thousands of dollars all right Second story we have for you today. Recently there was some good news. Sex prevents the corona virus. That explains why. I've caught it seven times since the pandemic started. Well someone please throw it in me. Oh by the way. Come to find out. that's not true. Sex does not prevent kovin. It was a fake health statement. That went viral shocker. They're a fake government document claiming that sex could cure cove. Nineteen so not. It's not that it could prevent covid. Nineteen that like you get the corona virus. You're sick you can barely breathe. You're on the verge of a ventilator the best thing you can do it's fuck someone really what you're doing is you're you're infecting another another person. Yes fake government. Document claiming that sex could cure kobe. Nineteen has been debunked by south africa's national health department. They have one of those things over there. The document claimed that four to six hours of sex a day. What that's almost a fulltime job. I couldn't if i wanted to. You have sex or four to six hours a day. Chances are you've got bigger issues than kovin like more pressing for instance dehydration and what. I call shaky legs syndrome. That ever happened to you. You get in a weird position that you're not normally and i think that's what causes the shaky leg. You're fucking in that position and then when you're done you get up to stand in. It's and it's like you're ambi canoe. Porn fawn barely walk. Maybe it's just me because i'm so out of shape all right. Even though the poorly written official government reports marked with the official health department logo was riddled with spelling mistakes and factual errors. It was shared widely on social media. Because you know wishful thinking. I guess dr gareth japhet asked the public to pause before post this bullshit. Much like the virus. Each of us has the power to break the link of infection and protect ourselves and others. So i've got a copy here of the official looking document. I gotta be honest with you. It doesn't even look official. It's got a watermark that's about it but then the entire document is centered which is weird. And here's what it says. The only way we can beat this corona virus exclamation mark. Note that let's keep everyone indoors at least four to six hours a day. We confirm that sex is the only option medication we can use for now. Let's try to make many rounds as we can at least four. I'm sorry at last two four to five per day until further notice. This is for elders only health and strong together. We conquer by department of health. Republican republican of south africa the spoof warning even spells the department of health's name incorrectly but some social media users were apparently taken in by the fake Far from being a cure for corona virus sex can in some cases helped the disease spread. Dr william marshall from the mayo clinic points out that the virus spreads by respiratory droplets released when someone with the virus coughs sneezes or talks as a result he writes coming in contact with persons spent. Drew kissing or other sexual activities could exposure to the virus. Ddo people who have covid nineteen could also spread respiratory droplets onto their skin and personal belongings as sexual partners could get the virus by touching these services and then touching his or her mouth nose or is dr marshall also adds that the virus can spread through contact with feces. dr marshall. what kind of sex do you think we're having. And how did you know it's possible you could get covid. Nineteen from sexual activities that exposure to fecal matter then he lists the most dangerous ramming anal sex scat. Okay dr calm down He went on to say. Don't forget highly specific. Sex acts commonly known as the cleveland steamer spicy gringo nigerian hurricane the kentucky tractor. Pull the drunk bus driver and the canadian porch. Swing you participate in any of those things. Be careful you're at additional risk for covid nineteen case. You are wondering about some of those. The nigerian hurricane is a sex act in which a man poops then puts it in a blender and proceeds to rub his body with it after the man a must quickly jump on his sex partner attempting to cover them as much of the feces as he can while also using anal penetration. I want you to understand that. I did not make up. That sex term the kentucky tractor puller is the act of a male and another male or a male and a female performing anal sex during sex the receiver clinches their butt cheeks tightly and runs with the penis still in the but oh they they try to pull the person fucking them like attractive. Ball makes sense. The drunk bus driver is a doggy. Sex style the left thumb is inserted into the receivers rectum and turn from from side to side essentially driving the bus. The right hand reaches around and squeezes the right breast honking the horn to alert patrons the buses coming. Don't forget to wave to the people waiting for the bus bottles story. We have for you today. Just just yesterday on the podcasts. We were talking about Asshole talkers specifically the woman who uses magic erasers on her teeth. She's telling all of her followers to get beautiful listening teeth us. One of those mister clean magic eraser. By the way don't do that like using sandpaper on your teeth. It's scraping off all of the enamel and also infusing your teeth with like formaldehyde shit. While i've got another tiktok douchebag for you today a talker who boasted that he tricked women into having unprotected sex with him could face up to twelve years in prison. How exactly did he trick. Women into having unprotected sex with him. Because i'm looking for some tips night. Oh boy name. Or name Dr ritchie who has twenty six million. I just i love when i try to pronounce foreign sounding names. Lot to jot how it's I have a real problem with it. I know kai glow ambani. There are plenty of examples out there. Adam hinojosa let's just call this guide. Ninety nine doritos twenty six million followers and is the most popular social media personality in spain said during an interview on youtube that he tells women that he sterile so he doesn't have to wear a condom during sex. I don't know what the laws are like in spain. But you know if the woman who just had sex with this guy gets pregnant she can easily figure it out probably that you know who got her pregnant and even though he says he sterile and it's proven that he's not he would be on the hook for supporting the ken right. I mean this is a very risky move. In many ways Irene montero the equality minister over there in spain said the could contravene law in which non consensual sex was considered rape. Isn't that what rape is the hell's going on over there. In spain we have a different way of thinking about consensual sex up until now it was like a misdemeanor running a stop sign. You raped a bitch. You got a ticket. i'm sorry sir. Did you know that you were fucking this woman without her consent. No officer. I'm sorry all right i'm gonna let you go with a warning this time. Thank you removing a condom or a jacky waiting inside. A woman wow. I didn't think the story was going to get so sexy. Removing a condom or a inside of a woman without consent is now sexual abuse. Good job spain. Welcome to the nineteenth century. All right now considered sexual abuse and the law will recognize its aggression. She tweeted ragging twenty. Six million followers about something like this reflects the urgency of putting consent at the center we will inform the prosecutor's office. He tiktok tar ticked. Sorry be tick tiktok star. Said i want to say sorry from my heart from my conscience at times. I don't realize that responsibility. I have and i get into trouble for my views so that he has. He has changed his views. He's just getting in trouble for the views that he's still holds. Which is my dick my rules. You wanna ride this hog. You better prepare for the consequences. All right he could face between one and twelve years in prison. If convicted on sexual abuse under a new law passed earlier this month to reclassify all nonconsensual sex as rape a law. Change comes after public anger over a series of court cases at prompted calls for a change to be criminal code. It followed the notorious wolf. Pack case in which five men gang raped and eighteen year. Old woman let's not call it rape if it's not really rape and in spain. Five men pinning down one girl ripping off their clothes in taking turns fucking her and all of our holes that's not rape. It's more akin jute jaywalking in spain. The law which will bring spain in line with other european countries like sweden and portugal will come into action later this year. Campaigners are pushing for the uk to introduce such laws really. They don't have those type of laws in the uk. Man if you are a rapist get on over to europe. You got some protections over there that my friends. E jordan started news for wednesday. Let's voicemails and get the hell outta here. Alright i love freaks in. There are many ways to contact the show. I'm sure you know with them. All right bye now. Two zero six six forty four sixty three. That's our voicemail line. Call in call often love to hear from you other ways to contact me. Show a distorted view dot com. I'm all over social media at distorted view on twitter and instagram facebook dot com slash distorted view. Show yada yada yada all right. Let's check in with a couple patrons first of all day any move in you march here so so i listened to the The episode with the the dude in the grilled cheese by trying to kill his wife. Yes i was listening to that. While i was coincidentally not eating a grilled cheese but i was having a case in which mexican cheese and i fucking choked. I swear. You're so fucking that was funniest. Shit shula fucking person nation of what it was probably like i lost my shit did we do. We didn't do it insensitive reenact. I don't remember what i said. I barely remember. That news story guy was because oh he dropped the grilled said which in the sink. I remember that's how it started thing. I noticed that. I couldn't even be nice about it. Never listened to an episode where you didn't use story from pennsylvania and you didn't pronounce it pencil allowing that's the correct way of pronouncing pennsylvania. I'm sorry pennsylvania. So i'm curious if anybody else has ever heard you just say. I'm sure at some point early on in the show i pronounced it pennsylvania and i i just came out of the mispronouncing things and i'm so good at times. I can't help myself because i'm a moron. You've heard me try to pronounce some of those names ceremony muka collecting long like that. I think what started that. Was that stupid sandwich video. That's where i got the idea to really start mispronouncing. Things like premise and cheese. Salman bennane as fucking dollar general. And there's like seventy year old guy carrying like two dingo water big pack of water and he drops on and some of the water spout others. Go grab a buggy. So there's an answer to your question that you know. Some people do say buggy. But they're like seventy something years old so you know. Give me a little a little break a fuck that. I'm just kidding. I love them. And i love you too and i hope you have a great day. Do whatever would come back on the program. I feel like meat. And i have a common love for mama's family. I think i've seen all the episodes of mama's family. I mean i'm not a fanatic. Like meat is but we might. You know we could find some common ground that way. I want to hear more about needs sex stories. You know what. I mean like the go straight. Ping's suck your biz fucked him and then like the stocking is you'd like but how do you approach me like. How do you get them to talk about that. I feel like he would just shut down. I was like hey when you were a teenager. Didn't you stock abroad. I want them to offer up more stories like that. Hello in front of its lack of chat line. Went orion. The other day wasn't here. Well i mean it was it was. It was kind of your fault but it was. It was the phone the phone connection. Coined a carpenter. Yes i use tools like compressor and obviously the different tools that i have used as sex toy analog sometimes like he wants to hear clippers plan using a fucking santer her like a A table mic compressor kicks tom. Compressed to make a lot of vlad laughs he laughs out of character. Laugh like a russian param but thought he might be funny. Like cannot fluctuated point correctly. And then he did sound funny. Compress talked up the whole thing. I'm sorry i should've gone hasn't me okay. One quickly. i've gotta can all be wondering stone. Learning as to do and it occurred to me you know how it works in some languages have different gender like in spanish words to be feminine or masculine right. I love wonder if you're a quick exercise with me and on the alphabet and give her a masculine feminine or intersex gender assignment so the different letters. I'm sure she says. Kim henson's mind will go on this. It might might take a few minutes. There might take a minute very quick. And i'd be curious what what what you could find from people by. Let's start with vows. a are feminine. You to me are masculine. Why obviously tranny be feminine. I know that's a controversial one right there. I a lot of you are probably gonna think that be I was gonna say. Be as a masculine letter. No beach too curvy. Capital be looks like jets on its side. D even though dis kirby but kirby of more masculine way. It's one big curve. You got that straight lie and then that that curve from the chopper the way to the bottom connecting the do lines just screams man to me also diaz for dick f again a lot of straight lines. I dunno just seems masculine g. Look i don't know if we're going just by the looks of the letters or the sounds they produce but that girl sound good. I don't know that does not see masculine. Feminine sound tough guys. Don't say a lotta go words. And if they do they should stop. I'm gonna go to the garden. i'm gonna go to the guard and shop right. Tell me a straight guy says shit like that. no. That's why. I don't like the word garage. I feel like we should find a new word for garage. Because that's something guys. Say a lot and i don't like h again with the lines. Straight lines to vertical one horizontal. It's simple it gets to the point. That screams guy to me. I same deal jay as feminine. Kay i'm gonna go against my my rule about the straight lines a lot of lines. You know that should be masculine but k. i dunno it just seems feminine kane. Look girls say that a lot. Okay i was gonna say that m is masculine. But i'm thinking now that m is feminine and has given birth to the letter and because in an kind of looks like an an like i like i like the offspring of an m. Oh i don't know if masculine feminine but oh is very gay. Oh also it looks like a butthole. I mean come on. I know i already went through the bowels. But i just thought of that about p. Looks like a woman right like a profile shot of a woman though straight up and then there's the curve of over tits. Hugh is feminine because it's like super picky about shit. I'm only going to stand next joy you that's how it's going to be q. Is is a girl who doesn't like any of your friends. I am not going over his house. I'm not going over house. I'm not gonna ever aides house. No i'll go over used house. I guess she's all right and she only likes you because you is so fucking plane. Accused got the full circle with the little curly thing at the bottom. She's just easy to show up you. You is qs ugly friend now again. What i wish i knew like what the parameters were for the dominant masculine thing. 'cause i mostly go and buy looks here are would be feminine and like show up. She's got a leg sticking out as feminine. It's all curbs. T masculine already talked about you. W i'm not sure if it's man or woman but it w is definitely a white supremacist. It's like all those lines and he just get the feeling that it could be reconfigured into a swastika. I think it has something to do with v. Like w and v are working together. I think those two letters together would be enough lines to make a swastika. So they're they're off lynching black letters and z. Is masculine but like mentally retarded. I hope that helps you. Vlad what a complete waste of time how they gender different letters or numbers but i might just be all right. Tim love you flat out right. Thank you very much flat for that complete waste of time. Let's end it right there. I spent too much time on 'gendering the letters that has all the time we have on this edition of the program. What you guys do you. Shop dot com started. Comments are official website. Forty two six six six six forty four sixty three. That's eight six six six. Oh god is it rather distortion as dd delight your friends about the shout.

EP32: Branka Panic: Influencing Peace by leveraging Artificial Intelligence

"You're listening to Masters decoded podcast series. I'm your host and the chief decoder a nice Merchant through this podcast. I bring in guests were successful in a different Walk of Life to decode and maps are careers and Journeys with the hope that we gained all our learnings the world around us is changing exponentially and how the impact of artificial intelligence technology and other socio-economic factors have either influenced or enhanced my guess careers. In today's podcast. I have invited Bianca Panic from a humble beginning to set up the think-tank working at the intersection of artificial intelligence piece human sexuality democracy human rights and humanitarian action. Branca is a political scientist expert in International Security International Development policy and peace pack with years of experience working on issues of fragility conflict and violence at the humanitarian peace development Nexus. She's the founder of the center for exponential Technologies and founding member of sustainable healthy habitats and healthy humans for peace. Besides her work Rancor consults and provide strategic support to International organizations governments and Civil Society organizations on the use of artificial intelligence machine learning virtual reality and related Technologies. In which she emphasizes diversity ethical implications and human security and accountability to affected populations. Our work has been covered in major Publications and it is my honor to have her on the show. I branca welcome to Masters decoded podcast series. Thank you for taking time out. Hi, of course, it's a pleasure to be here. Cool and Company which you run is such a big interest area for me as well. But today when you think about peace and you think about AI they don't get spoken in the same breath or in the same sentence. So why this idea what happened and what got you to stop this company? Thanks for this question. And you say I think it's it's a really good one and people usually ask this. How can we actually connect the two land for me off or people who signed today for please it was actually a natural thing for us. It was a must almost a moral obligation for people to think about peace and and peaceful societies when they think about young guy and I when we started talking about this topic you and I we were talking also about as a technology and pieces of survival and that was a really trigger for me a really interesting thing because for me peace is not only about surviving this is actually off driving as well. And for most of the people there first Association of peace is usually war or or absence of war and and a i v e Works not only to stop Wars and conflicts in violence, which is extremely important, but we work on sustaining peace on recognizing those thoughts are lying conditions that make a society peaceful. And this is this concept that I would like your audience and listener has to hear about this is what we call a positive piece about attitudes institutional structures that create and sustain peaceful societies. So how do we then tie this notion of. Technology and I think we can agree that peace and Technology always had a complicated relationship. It was not always an easy not always off or is it one and and when we look today when we looked at so your listeners are in high heeled there or in general exponential technology. So a lot of technologies that come into age Sunbrella off and I I I think that this relationship becomes even more complicated and this is something that we try to explain to people and to show what is this connection and you see that AI is accelerating rapidly and shaping all fear of the Spheres of of our lives. And at the same time this power of makes it possible to tackle so many big challenges in our lives and we see that piece is one of life's challenges. So we want to use a I practically be going to use this positive words to see how we can make our society is more peaceful and that's what we saw in the previous couple of decades. It's that technology and especially now ai is mostly used in Warfare. This is what we hear. Those are those are those buzzwords right song Autonomous weapons or Killer Robots. Yeah or drones and we believe that this is again a very important for us to serve as as a sort of Guardian sort of Peace in relation to these Technologies as all but we should also take advantage in researching how these Technologies can be used also to prevent and mitigate and resolve conflicts. And and this is something that may I for peace is trying to bring to the table. How did this idea come about to leverage AI for peace what got you to initiate this company and was there something in the back which was growing which got you to think about 4. Yeah, I think many things to be honest and I truly believe that each one of us and the work that we are doing is I'm a sheep by our backgrounds personal backgrounds as well even spaces, you know, where we are working and people that we are working with so I think. This definitely ship my decision to work in this area first of all from the perspective of pieces such so I was born and raised and lived most of my life in the region called Balkans. Okay, and maybe where the listeners who are not familiar with this region. So Balkans is home based in south east Europe and we had a very complicated past throughout the history. Not only recent one but the far one as well. We are known to many people as Powder Keg or or powder keg of Europe. So I think this can explain alot how explosive the reason is off and because of yeah, it's it's a difficult region to live in I think and this Heritage that I'm probably bringing between shapeless idea of working for peace and almost any family from from my region. I think if they look in in their pasts own 19th and 20th Century or maybe even earlier than that, they can realize that there was barely a single generation that it didn't go through war or that was not affected by conflict. This is this heavy Heritage that I'm talking about and I I was I grew up through one of these periods as well myself and I thought Simply spontaneously, I think decided to dedicate my work in this direction to make sure that we keep our society safe and Thursday is all and then seeing on the other side how Technologies are in general impacting as I said our lives and what is this potential to impact of peace? I decided to merge the two and I think this was just the beginning of AI for peace only when I actually started working in data scientist, and when I moved to us and joined the data team from my work in DC I realized that there is a gap in this field. There's a lot of organizations who are picking up now not only on the business side, but in General trying to see how a I can be used for good but not many of them trying to see how a dog Be used for peace and just recognizing this Gap and the need of exist exist of the needs to have a platform where we can gather a community and discuss these issues this motivated establishing of four pieces as a hub and community of practice of people who want to make sure that the contributes to more peaceful world's know it's motivating and candidly it is heartening to hear even in that conflicts era and what you had seen you did also educate yourself to be not burdened with what's your surrounding or what the social political environment was but also to teach yourself know what's right or wrong and that led you to to us where you did your Masters but you Canna versity. So how did that transition happen? How how are you keeping up with your studies during the childhood home? Of the conflicts which are going around. How was the Family Support enabling all of that, which was during that error. Yeah, well it was you can imagine like going through any War it was a complicated time at that time. You didn't go to school. So we didn't have wage internet connection or or even TV this covid-19 reminds me a lot about the the. The event through When The War was happening in my region and life somehow stops. But you also learn to appreciate life much more and I think this was this is this memory that I'm having from this time. And then as I said, this shaped my vicious will to to break in this area so early on while I was still studying. Well, well, I was still at high school. Actually I took that as an activist so I joined the resistance movement to oppose the authoritarian regime of that time. And and then I decided to study political science has on my bachelors was in the international relations and my first Masters in International Security and off when I started working with a refugees who were coming from Middle East and North Africa. So unfortunately new conflicts continued happening in other parts of the world, but I think I mean this was the the first time when we actually started combining technology with thinking about conflicts or or in this case, it was assisting refugees and helping them on this path and and reintegration. So this is this time off was I think that the this changing moment for me when I realized that not many things were happening in this area, especially in exponential Technologies in Europe dead. And then I decided to make this strange decision as a mid-career professional professional to to leave my country and go to u s because I got a bought a chance to do this machine learning related regnier. So I was awarded as a Rotary International Peace fellow and this is how I may drive the Duke University and did a two-year research on combining artificial intelligence with peace-building blah. And this is how the story the story evolved. So let's talk about a little bit about the the way you were supporting and you were being helping the month. I would say the the refugees around that and you know, mentally you have to be much more stronger right because each refugees Comes through a very different need and a background how has that shaped your thinking today when you look at peace and when you look at a I mean you think about those refugees how it could help them because I look at those three Focus areas on your website and kind of sums up what you are thinking about and what your focuses so somewhere all this ties up. Thank you so much for this question because not many people actually think about this and I think this is a crucial question for developing artificial intelligence technology or any technology. Is that impact vulnerable populations. And and for me this was this part of an experience, maybe not going directly through through this myself would actually working with people who are going through this to realize how important it is to have their voices included as well. And I thought time I was working in humanitarian relief. So I worked with a refugee Center and people were coming from different conflict affected areas having barely anything with them mostly a backpack because they were walking or this song A very difficult path for them to go through but most of them always had a cellphone. So this was an interesting moment when we realized that this became a very essential technology for them almost a survival technology, you know, this is the this tool that was helping them to find a way on their way to Europe or to stay in contact with their families to get information. And then we also started thinking about this. Okay. It's just such an essential thing for them how we can proactively use that tool to to help them on this path. And there is this amazing organization called Technologies and they started their initiatives throughout the world. They work with refugees in different refugees sensors. And this is exactly what they are doing connecting Technologies. With the needs of refugees so they started organizing hackathons throughout the world. And and this is how I jumped into one of the haircutters wage. We had 48 Hours of very intense work off thinking about solutions for refugees, but the Innovative so hackathons are not anything Innovative anymore, but for them the Innovative part was that they were not only including people from Texas side and people on the communitarian relief side. They actually included refugees themselves. So that was really an immersive experience sharing space with them talking with them hearing from their direct experience. You know, we were not pushing Solutions bottom out. We actually talked with them so long this feeling of Grassroots approach and real human censored what we call today human censored. This is what we experience at that time and that was Almost five years, I think or four years ago. So these were those Beginnings, you know, little bits and pieces that gave me an idea what what can be found on and today we are thinking even a step further with a big data and all of the amount of information that we are gathering from different resources, and we are thinking proactively how can we use this to help different vulnerable populations, but at the same time and be very conscience that the utilization of these Technologies can create unintended consequences as well. And this is this part of inside that I got. I think when I moved to your SM actually joined the data team, I was working at the World Bank in DC with the unit called fragility conflict and violence birth. Just seeing that although you have you don't need malicious use of the technology. I mean, it's really important to concentrate on this. But even when we have good intentions off when you really want to create a positive impact we can again create unintended negative consequences. And this was I think a huge insult Kori. I for peace and one of the reasons why we created this platform to talk with people to keep these conversations active and to make sure that anybody who works on a I think about unintended consequences or what we today call ethics and different elements of of Ethics. Yeah, and the ethics question comes in because of the data itself has malicious data in it or it has been blocked from that perspective. And the topic you are talking about is peace and conflict regions or conflict areas finding data during that scenario is difficult because in many years of data don't exist because of the social political environment people would be saying there is no data and you know, a lot of movies a lot of Articles talk a lot about that. We don't have data. We don't know how many people are affected by so-and-so like I don't want to bring that up. But the reason blast which happened in one of the Middle Eastern region. Nobody knew how many people got impacted how many people died and it was unfortunate because there was lack of data or the data was there but it was hidden somewhere. So, you know, you did a hackathon as well and you were saying you were talking to a lot of these refugees. How did you tackle that problem? And when you today tackle the problem of AI for peace, how do you tackle the data problem? Because in corporate world also people say oh this is not any I use case because there's no data. So, how do you go about solving that Yeah, I think there are two very important elements of your question. And and before I tackle the last on let me go back quickly to what you said at the beginning that when we talk about ethics we think about data ethics and what we usually call is biased so it's not only that we don't have data. But even when we have their think about the things about fires data and embedded discrimination or biases that are already out there that we are in a way emphasizing through the utilization of algorithms or trying to change for different problems to be the algorithms and I think this is only partially true it's it's very important to think about this and to to tackle the bias in data, but it's very important to think about the application Phase of of a certain solution and Technology as well. And this is what we often see in humanitarian field or or peace-building field. That even if we had the perfect non-biased data set even if you didn't have black holes, even if we had everything on this paper, we still need to be very careful how certain Solutions and algorithms are being utilized in practice and let me maybe just explain this way to to audience a bit from from my own work. So I was I joined the team the data team that was developing algorithms for predicting probability of family and happening in Conflict areas. So I was brought to the team as a social scientist to validate the if the algorithm is at all not at all a good solution for a problem like this and this is why I'm saying even if we had all of the data related to this problem and we didn't we would still off. A huge ethical problem because what we realized is that a modern families are not natural disasters, so they are minimum wage and they are used as a tool starvation is used as a tool of War. So when we develop an algorithm and put it out there as a public good to International organizations to use to tackle femynor to know well in advance when certain population will be in hunger. We are also am giving this algorithms to potentially malicious actors and we are going back to this complicated context of wars and conflicts and often government wage, even those malicious actors. So there is this element of you know, additional ethical layer of consideration when we are developing birth. Or when we are thinking that we are solving challenges with algorithms or or a I so this is one thing just to try to explain to your audience how complicated it is to walk on but but how even additionally complicated it is when you are working with vulnerable populations and trying to solve issues that they are struggling with life. And when you are approaching problems and go back quickly to think that you mentioned absolutely lack lack of data and and this is very important to recognize and to be honest and transparent about this and I think this is something that we see as a wave of activism as well that people are becoming people who are working on becoming more and more aware and transparent about this the other way is or the other important element for tackling dead. Problem is again the access to different Technologies and even to the internet is such and I can give another example of conflict in Syria Iraq, and how actually because of this lack of data that you were mentioning citizens themselves started playing this role of citizens off Witnesses, like physical Witnesses and they themselves started posting either videos or information or tweets or wage in any model. It doesn't even have to be a social media even traditional media in some countries. It's even the radio. So what what what is being published on radio can be used at that data point so data points are not only numbers any more natural language processing now we have this ability to use everything that is textual or even voice an Choi. And to use it as that missing data point and what what Syrian activists and citizens allowed an enabled us to do is actually get this amazing amount of evidence of crimes that were happening in Syria. And and this is becoming becoming an extremely helpful tool for human rights lawyers or human rights protectors and organizations who are working in this field to cover those gaps and to use the information that citizens themselves can find well, you know the topic which are focused on For peace is also a tough one where you would be getting a lot of pushback. I'm sure because one is peace and one is a I am. So have you had any push packs or have you had people coming to you? You shouldn't be doing this. In a polite way, I would say I'm sure they could be not sure. I think you pointed this in a right way. I think both of the topics are very complicated to say at least and what we experienced from the peace side is that so we try to work globally although be started from California and register the organization be really try to go as much as we can globally to cover different parts of the world are off advisors are from Columbia Ethiopia Kyrgyzstan. And then when we look into these specific Regional approaches, it's we see the different plants also have different issues. They even perceive peace content of the world in a different way or some of them even have a saturation of Brooklyn piece so this is one challenge that we are struggling with and the other one is actually a i because I is dead and I'm sure that you probably encounter this as well that very often people can be biased towards and Technologies and they can generalize very quickly. They just pick one news, you know, the malicious use of facial recognition or a surveillance technology, which is absolutely an important topic but they immediately generalize this negative emotion across the Spectrum and I think the AI is such a complicated set of Technologies. And then each one of them can be used in different ways. Did I don't think any generalization will bring anything good. So this is this is one of the challenges. And then when we started we actually bought it will be complicated to convince peacebuilders, you know being or to help them understand the I am is complicated terms. And and this is how we started that we publish the our first publication was this non-technical guide about a I woke to translate those complicated Concepts and to explain to people what the potential of the technology is. And what was the surprise for us. It's nice other side that we didn't realize that we will have to explain to a i people with peace actually is and so this wage isn't this interesting Insight that often we see the organizations that are actually working what we call peace-building field, but they don't Define themselves in that that way home. Please don't recognize this or this is not the way how they would pitch, you know, their start-up or business because this is not something that off this business world is used to so, this is an interesting insight and this is what we are trying to do now to not only explain to both groups of what the terms are. But also great we'll build Bridges between the two land to make maybe communication between them easier because we really believe that choice everybody not only peace Builders, but everybody needs to know what AI is and what kind of impact algorithms have on our lives. But but also we believe that experts computer scientist ml engineer and everybody in this field need to be peace builders in a way Jose. The little bit, you know, they need to be aware how their work is impacting everyday lives of people and how they're impacting peace as long. Okay, and you've been saying V. This is an almost humanitarian initiative, which you are driving who's V all about? How big is your page? How did you get the team aligned to this guy for peace? Yeah. It's it's a very interesting question because you really think I think find that out of our previous work so Founders and the people who gathered around this Advisory Board of the I-4 piece most of us wage were previously working either in the humanitarian field or the development or peace building and of course, we buy in the meantime had people from AI side as well. Joining what you realized is that it's crucial to open this network as much as possible. You realize that often. These kind of organizations function is a little closed circles and then it's really hard to get into that Circle and be part of conversation. So we want to go in a completely different direction. We want to open up at 5, and we want to be inclusive and this is why I'm saying we are more functioning as a sort of a network where we want together experts communities of practice when you say experts we don't mean only experts but also anybody who is bringing this field expertise and ultimately the the same common citizens as well. And and this is why we are trying to some of our work is really dedicated to talking and speaking with common citizens. So we are publishing these new song. We are trying to keep people informed what is happening in these fields. And and I think what is maybe a bit different than these when I'm thinking about how we start the most of the organizations that are working on researching the social consequences of the I and and this is what we are doing the most of them are sponsored by people who were either working in big tech companies or related businesses or are still working their job or the organizations like this are established in the framework of the University. So it's a small think tank in us scene with these kinds of organizations are either established in Stanford or Harvard or MIT as similar as well throughout the world. This is the case. And in that sense be honest different. So we are an absolutely a grass-roots type of platform initiated and started but by a bunch of enthusiasts who are dedicated to to keeping the peace in the world that positive is that I mentioned at the beginning and and Thursday because I think we are starting from this position. We really want to include as many people as possible in this process. Yeah peace has become a big topic today around the world because the Spanish because really emotionally challenged many of us. I would say that's what has really bought. The the pandemic has brought to the Forefront is peace, and the definition of peace and I'm sure you would be approached any of the organization would be approached to talk about the applications. It's not just the famine but to also see where peace can be disrupted home. As of the situation which are happening across the world. So, how are you today? Because it is very busy. For some pretty like you in this space right now. How are you keeping up? How's things happening during this pandemic for you? Well, maybe I can give you an example be the beginning of pandemic as for many organizations. I think the place has changed and the strategy and everything we have just to do with it provides and think about absolutely and and this was in a way a good thing because this is exactly thought brought us to thinking, you know be how you mentioned it and is now thinking about David as well and how it is impacting our lives and how cold it is impacting pieces mall or in general more vulnerable populations. So although we started our work as a thing thing planning to do a research paper you call me to be quickly jumped into Data related work and and then was really this positive aspect of of being able to work remotely. With people throughout the world just organizing to the work through zoo more slack and the first activity that we did was actually a net Nai chal lunch. We partnered with organization called on dental and they are functioning is a platform of AI and data scientists were putting their skills to tackle some problems related to Big role challenges and because they were mostly black connecting data scientist. They realize that a bit a pandemic we need to make a connection with people who are working in the field as well. And this is this added value that long for peace is bringing to the table. So in our membership, we have people who worked on previous Ebola pain that fun demek in West Africa experts in Rome. Health Organization in the United Nations and so on. So we did this real life program of what I mentioned previously of building a bridge between the two routes and we organized a 10 week challenge of utilizing the available data and trying to see what those consequences that pandemic policies are creating to the world's most vulnerable populations. And and this was really a good exercise and the project spontaneously happen and it was not easy at the beginning for the first two to three weeks. You were just trying to Define what will their ability means for different groups. It meant different things and then we actually realize how difficult it is sometimes to define a problem when you think from a data perspective wage. When you need a formula to express a certain problem and from a field perspective or vulnerable groups perspective where this vulnerability could be translated into formula that easily and it can be translated easily. Especially when you look again from different countries and different regions because we see how different regions are not going to be going through this crisis. So this was a really good experiment and I think this is exactly how any AI projects should be done currently and in the future just including a diversity of voices diversity of perspectives this group had more than 30% of women and diversity. We had more than more than forty countries throughout the whole representatives from those countries throughout the world song. And just hearing all of these voices and having them include was crucial for for the project itself. So this is a sort of a pattern and the lesson I would like to keep utilizing and sharing with other organizations as well who are working in this field. Looking back at your career and your life also still young but I'm just saying you've seen a lot and in the name of the peace, you've seen them in a very different life than common human being with see it and you've impacted in many ways also using the knowledge and the experience and your own personal experience. I had there been moments which really says I need to keep going because what I'm doing is good, and I'm making a change. Well, you mean the moment like a specific event in your life. Yeah any work that you did which when you look back and you say yes, that is an impact. I created or my team. Yeah, that's that's a very good question. Yes. Absolutely. I think first we thought you were asking about the motivation for work. And and I think whenever I turn the news on may I suggest so many problems we have and this keeps me motivated, you know, there's so many things to be done. But absolutely that's that's a good question. You need to get some impact in results as well to to keep going and and I think for a guy for peace we are still very young organization. We just piloted in January. So I'm still hoping for wage impact to to come for now. I think the feedback of people and actually their interest and and their motivation to join this community and recognizing that we've actually need to think more about AI in peaceful terms not only in general ethical terms is a sort of a recognition that this is improved. And and then in in my previous work, I think in humanitarian work, there are a lot of examples on everyday basis even a simple contract through the person is so rewarding. Yeah, just spending, you know couple of moments and talking and sharing experiences is just such a motivation to keep going. I had a very important experience. I think when I moved to us for the first time in my life, I experienced hurricanes and I came from were affected region, right so I know how that looks like. I've never experienced a bath disaster in such a way and I went to Puerto Rico that was a hurricane Maria that completely almost destroyed half of the island, so I went there dog. To join humanitarian relief and we were just trying to help local communities and to rebuild some of the destroyed packages and and that was such a huge shock for me to see how actually even a natural disaster can destroy the same way how wrong can destroy and I think that was an important lesson just to realize how and this is why I'm talking about this positive piece. It's not only about violence and conflict and off work. There are so many other challenges out there that we need to face and and to fall to have this positive piece. Yeah. So this is this is kind of these insights. It was really a a sort of a life-changing moment. Interesting today you spoke about there is a community being formed. There is a network being formed around the fifties. So for my listeners benefit if they want to be part of this, how do they get do that? Oh, absolutely, if they're interested specifically in in AI in peace, they can always reach out to us and virtually personally they can find me on LinkedIn. We have a website as well. They can contact us there. There are many ways how they can get engaged depending on their interests as well. So we always do a a sort of a tailor-made and Taylor took a pair the corporation. We do a lot of mentoring as well that that's a very important component for us and in general if people are interested in in this area and I speak maybe more to This Woman's side of your audience because I I still think there is a lot of work that we need to do on that gender equality and gender gap in a tank and especially wise I would definitely advise them to join women in a i there are different chapters different groups almost in every country now, so it's dead. But it's not a limiting factor. If you're not in you know us where we usually think the majority of things are happening. This is what brought me to Silicon Valley and then I realized that no that that doesn't need to be like this. There's so many moves really throughout the world. There is a group for your listeners who are more interested in a i f f I would definitely advise women any ethics group that is trying not only to bring visibility to the ethical elements of a I but bring visibility to diversity off well and how important the diversity I is. Yes, absolutely. So there are many many reasons how they can get engaged God. Thank you. Thank you for sharing that and I'm sure people will be reaching out to you to get to know more about this and talking about women in a i and the technology. you know, it's it's a very today it has opened up eyes for many I would say where it starts not just when you are in the corporate but it starts at the Grassroots level and I talked about Grassroots. It starts from Early Education. How do you do not deter or force a specific gender? I would say men and women both to think about Korea a certain way or think about education in a certain way now through this area for peace and you did speak about bringing in that aspect. How are you promoting that aspect also because that's a topic which is near to you, too. Yeah, absolutely. That's a very good point that I think we are recognizing this more and more how education is is important and I just wouldn't like people especially younger audience. If there is a younger audience of this podcast to think that it is too late, you know, if their society where their Community maybe knowledge them and pushed them in a certain direction and happens all over the world and I still think that education is a sort of a life-long effort and goal and and I see the importance of really supporting Tech education for job for younger people as well. But I also believe that there is a way for in in later stages of life to be included in this topic in many different ways and in terms of birth Education itself. I think their organizations are really trying to again in a similar way how women in in July epics are sharing a light to a jingle on elements of this stopping their organisation. We're helping especially disadvantaged groups in early-stage primary education or secondary education to get an ax just that a usually wouldn't get and I think that's extremely important especially seeing how different universities can be expensive or how educational field can be expensive. There is a way to enter this field without being disadvantaged, you know, because of lack of money or resources and job there there are numerous platforms out there and if anybody's interested just reach out to me platforms that are working on this volunteering base of Engagement off. Severe people will share their skills and learn others even people who are coming from MIT or or Stanford. So you don't you your job opportunities will not be limited if you are not present there and and then maybe an is just to emphasize the importance of this topic how we are talking I think for for decades about this issue of Gender Gap and recited by talking in Tech now we are talking about and unfortunately when we look into number as we still think we still see how situation is is very very bad and I got just to walk straight this I got some numbers so people can see how how difficult the situation is and I can just meet quickly some of them that women off. Wrenching meets up to 24% of the computer science work for us only 24% And what what is even more important maybe using this down in salaries between men and women so million salaries are only a 66% of the salaries of the male counterparts. So those discussions that we need to have as well. Why is this the case for the same work? We there is such a big pay Gap and and then another thing that would actually recommend from this network women of a I did that I became part of the Shadow light to this. I was not even aware of this and that it's not even a problem of Academia or entering to the working force of tech. The problem is actually keeping women because the work is shaped in such a way that it keeps men dead. I'm thinking about about this different experience that men and women are having through this work. So this is an important element that we need to think about them as well. And then I mean it's enough just to look at numbers of different big tech companies. That should probably give a sort of a role model to others but are not doing that. The numbers are really terrible even in Google or Facebook me see that women are less than 20% of the technical role and then for women of color the situation is even worse. So we definitely need to talk more about this, but we need to find a way to call the Bergen has Asians accountable and to bring you know these conversations to practice and to see how we can finally do something about this Gap. No, it's a it's a very I would say it is a very crucial topic and we have seen diversity brings in a lot of variety and I've experienced it myself, you know, and I have always had that healthy balance Even in our organization today. We have about sixty 40% you know, it goes up and down by two or 3% year in that but it's been there but it's been an effort to ensure that you know, you just don't force people in but you also get the right people for the right cause but also at the same time you bring in the divorce to be as much as possible so that you know, there's different perspectives which often you miss. If you have a line to one whether it is cost color gender off any of those aspects not it's not just about gender. It's about variety of diversity, which you should have within within your T, which is crucial. Absolutely. So I know we have on top of an hour back and I know you're super busy time is flying. We don't know we are still in October and I don't know how this entire here hath but you've seen a lot in life and I'm sure there are a lot of such people out there also who may choose different parts, but you've taken right in a very positive way and you're doing things which have an Ensure that what has impacted. You doesn't impact many Anglers. What would be your parting thoughts or advice be to somebody either going through the situation which you've been through or thinking about doing what what will be of talk to them? I will definitely advise to anybody to follow their passion. You know, I know it's it's off Maybe funny, but I really think this is crucial, you know, just listening your heart and and following what is close to to your heart and doing this work and not giving up when it's tough, It will be tough throughout the life in in many many ways and we see this through, as well. And I think that every time something doesn't happen or if you miss an opportunity that's only a way for another opportunity to appear, you know, and something better to have happen and just keeping this off approach don't being afraid, you know to start again and sometimes to fail but but don't give up. I think this is something that I would advise to log. to everybody on that note Banker. It was a great conversation. I really enjoyed it. I got myself educated about and peace and how they both can go together. So thank you for your time your precious time off. I really appreciated the conversation we had today so much and it was such a pleasure to be here and talk and I hope we will continue this conversation some day soon. I'm definitely definitely and you have a good day and stay safe and be peaceful. I would say thank you and is thank you for listening in and we close yet another episode of Masters decoded.

This is a show for you said it's g e o and co-founder of braccus a platform that creates content for your marketing campaigns using these previously at marketing teams at companies, like think if women stand and much more money to the sales consultant and run ads for dozens of companies, like click up type form procurify and more said welcome to life transformation radio. Hey. Thank you so much for having me and I'm very excited to be here. Absolutely, like you are just such a cool guy. The way that I found said was I was scrolling through the web and I found his plan for branca and it's an AI platform, which I'm totally fascinated. But what I loved about it was I got involved in the platform and got really excited about it, but there was an about and I looked up and I found out his website and on that website. I discovered that there's a lot to said the CEO and co-founder of Baraka that I need to share with the world. And so that's what we're going to do here today sit has traveled all across the world and I'm just so excited to have you here today. Thank you rob. Yeah, and I'm excited to share that story so we could go back. So you graduated 2010 with a degree in engineering and you know, I love what you said hear. The first part of the story is going to sound familiar. So, you know used to work a well-paid corporate job as a Management Consultant and then you realize it wasn't what you want to do. So your quit and you left the comfort and then you said to explore the world and I love it you go pretty standard, right? And then at this point you probably expect that you went to Thailand and then you wrote a Blog and you started, you know, hanging out in the beach and you did sort of like that. But what happened? Yeah, yeah, we have to turn that clock all the way back ten years or more but you know, like coming out of University with an engineering degree. I think it was I realize now it's it's like the same thing for anything coming out of a University degree. Like you're still not really sure what you should be doing with your life. Right? And I I was you know, I did the corporate job. I didn't management consulting and before that it did seem like software development at a couple of places and and and all of that I just realized was not what I really wanted to do. I never felt like when I woke up in the morning, I was excited to go to work and to do that stuff. I didn't know what else what else I wanted to do, you know, so I decided to go it wasn't planned but I I decided to go and explore new things. I didn't know where I was going to leave that and the idea was just let's take it one step at a time. So the first thing I did was one thing I was I thought of was I really enjoy traveling I wanted to travel and I had this idea for a social networking app for travelers who could connect with people on the move when you're in New City and or see things to do or or figure out what to do in ready to go when you're visiting a new place off. So I I contacted a friend of mine who would study with me in school and we decided to stop this app as a business and then we we applied to a start up a month later in Chile South America regarding and so I said, all right. I'm going to quit my consulting job my friends that he was going to get credit job and we were going to move to South America and start building this app. And so that's where this this whole journey of travelling around and trying new things begins. That's amazing. You know, one of the things I loved about your blog on how you you did this was, you know, in today's show is don't be afraid to fail and you know, most people afraid of failure they're afraid of failure and I love so in this in this page and I'm gonna put a link to this cuz in this show notes cuz I think this is really powerful and you talk about this and it says that didn't go suck cuz there's a failure. So what happened in Chile? Yeah, so so what happened in Chile? It was I mean we were young we didn't really know what he wanted to do. And this was just like an idea that we had and had got in somehow into this accelerated program so long that we are fresh-faced and green and and Chile trying to do some kind of build something that we have no idea what how to build right? Like we have no qualifications nothing and so as you can expect it never it didn't work out just take off. It didn't nothing happened. Eventually. We spent a year in Chile and you know within the first six months we were like, oh this is not going to work. We tried a couple of different things and and then I realize that I need to like stop making some money somehow because our funding had run out. So I started to dabble in a bunch of other stuff online like freelance web design and web page in sand and some content right just like freelance marketing and stuff like that. So just really just trying a lot of different things online. Like, how do I make money online? Let me let me offer services as a designer as a wage. Web developer as a Content writer as a marketer and and yeah, that's that's kind of like the sort of the first big failure. But thank you. Drove me to try to figure out what to do next, you know, cuz I didn't want to go back home just yet and give up and and go back to becoming a a Management Consultant. It was kind of it was almost a month ago, you know, like no I got to prove to the world and I can I can cut it on my own, you know. Well, that's one way to overcome failure like you let your ego you like, you know, I'm not going to be a failure. A lot of people are stopped in their tracks They just one failure will derail a whole life. Yep. Yeah, and and overcome that. Yeah, so what made you keep going, I guess for me. Yeah. Well, maybe keep going was I I started to experiment with like trying different ways to make money and I started to make a bit of money off. So I got paid to create some design photo website to write some content for some for another company and I you know, this this was it wasn't a ton of money was a maybe like a couple of $2,000 a month just enough to get by in Asia or South America. And so I said, all right. Maybe this is something I could continue growing cuz I'm making I'm making something here. I am enjoying it. It's my own time. And and I'm I'm able to live a good life. So maybe I keep going here and seeing where it leads me. Right. So it was it was you know overcoming the failure of of Chile was really just about okay put in behind me you failed. What's next now? Cuz right now you need to start making money. So let's go figure that out. And let's just see what it takes me, right? So again, it wasn't I did not plan to keep doing freelancing online, but and that was not my my big Vision or goal when I went to Thursday the first place, you know, the big Vision was to build up a company and to become, you know to make millions of dollars, but I said, well, this is what's getting me money right now and let me just lean into it. And if I'm liking it right now then why not just keep doing it and continue traveling around and so one of the things I wanted to do always was to go to Thailand in to like learn martial arts. And I said well now with the best time, you know, I'm sort of working online and making money online and I can I have the freedom to move around and try these things. So after the urine chili, I'm I went to Southeast Asia and that club The another year of traveling around different countries Singapore Vietnam Thailand engine and just like working online and doing experiments online. And so did you do we tie while you were there in Thailand? Yeah, I did. I spent for three to four months learning more time. And then another thing I was dead in Thailand. You know, I was still doing like I was making a a few hundred bucks as a Content writer like a couple of thousand maybe at most riding content, you know, like freelance blogging and stuff like that month and it was enough to get by in time, you know, cuz it's cheap, but I said, okay, what's right. What else can I do right how else can I make some money? So one of the things I I read about in a book was, you know, people starting these online e-commerce businesses. In fact, it was the 4-Hour workweek that that had read like okay, you know, you could start an e-commerce business you can do Drop Shipping and age you can sell these products online and I said, okay, what can I sell online and in Thailand when I was when I was doing the Muay Thai stuff, I noticed that there were a lot of other folks over there who wanted like a quick protein snack between workouts and um, and there was there was nothing available there. Right? Like they would go to the local restaurant and he like noodles and stuff. So I said, okay maybe what I can do is I am I can impose some protein snacks from from the US and sell them here. Maybe that's a good business. So I tried that so I started to import them. I started selling it and then I hit a snag that was another failure. Basically the snag was there's a limitation on your input. If you're importing Thailand because below a certain number of of protein boxes. It's like a personal purchase but above a certain number. It's a commercial project and then you have import fees data and you you know, you need to start a company in Thailand and for that you need to put your Thai citizen. So there's always rules and stuff and I kind of just gave him in like do any research as like I'm just going to go I'm going to enforce some stuff and I'm going to refill them over here. So yeah my I did the first batch. Have you sold them in the second batch, uh had hit got hit with import duties. And if that yeah, you know what this is not going to work. So this is another failure. Let me try something else. I love that. I think it's so incredible that you keep having failure after failure. You're like, okay. Well, let me try this and then you move to to Vietnam and I thought you started a business. Like that's incredible. So tell me about that. Yeah, so the the poster business was another idea I had while I was in college just before I left Ireland and back again. It was part of this whole sort of phase where I was exploding e-commerce and Drop Shipping, right? And basically the poster business was there was a, you know Shopify may be for you to create an online store and then bring full is dropshipping supplier of posters. So you would give you just upload some designs and then your Shopify store and anyone would come to your Shopify store would buy a designer and been through a chipper to them and I had no choice to do it. I'd like I didn't have to do any of the shipping printing or none of that. So I hired a guy on like fiber or something to create some designs and the idea for the store was it was motivational posters of people going to the gym and I I had this idea because in time and you know, I was going to the gym and doing martial arts there and and they had something like motivational posters around I said, okay, maybe this could be a business right so I can sell the gyms so long I I set that up and then I I saw it to reach out a bunch of gyms in the while I was in Asia this, you know gyms in the US because they're selling in US Dollars. Actually. I'm a sales and then so that was kind of like the way I was making money while I was in Vietnam, but you know, my heart wasn't in it was just posters right? It's not like a real long-term viable business. At least I thought hey, I'm going to sell some more posters today actually got a bad kind of thing. Yeah, exactly. Exactly. You know, you know, it was it made me enough money. Yep. Surviving Vietnam, but it's not enough for me to like go. This is a real thing that I want to do for my for the rest of my life. So I I decided to stop that and again that was another failure. Yeah, but but but then because I was in Vietnam at that point, I was seeing as meeting a lot of other entrepreneurs other folks were doing e-commerce and and so on and then off I I found this this blog that was basically an e-commerce log does up for sale for like $500 and and basically the way the blog work was, you know, it was a contract out of Saudi, store and yada yada, which I dunno I kind of pick picked up the basics. Um, and then it lifted a bunch of tools you could use and the affiliate links and you so basically affiliate site right for six persons continue attracting traffic you can read that using into affiliate links. And so I said, okay, maybe this is something I can do like I have a couple of experiences with you, stores. Haven't really found a great Niche. But you know, I'd love to keep trying out new niches and meanwhile I can blog about my journey took me, companies using this blog. So I purchased a Blog and that became the next project for me. I love it. You just keep driving like that is that is not the norm. So what is it about you you're like, okay, that didn't work then try again. That didn't work. I'm going to try again. So, is there some mental process or is it just said like what what is it? I think it was it was. there's a couple of things one was there was this thing of I just couldn't give up right because like if I gave up then what am I doing? You know, I'd basically be like I'd have to go back to my page back to the basement and it didn't get it and find a job, you know, but at the same time I think that we should point at that point when I when I bought that blog that I was thinking. Well, I've been trying a lot of different things and feeling and maybe something that's missing is just the fact that I don't really know how to build a business and you need to go and start at a small company join as an employee and learn how it looks on the inside right? So then just starting a business. Exactly. Yeah, there's a lot more to running a business than just starting a business. Everybody says I want to start a business. There is a lot to running a business. There's a lot and it's not for the faint-of-heart. I'm an entrepreneur. You're not preneur and I have I have to give massive Kudos and shout outs to anyone who's an entrepreneur because everybody thinks oh, you know, it's so easy. It's it's not the difference is is if I look at this way say, for example, you make a hundred little to say but make it simple say you make $40,000 as an employee great now a manager for a moment you made $40,000 in your own business. And that's the power because it's all based on everything that you have done. You get paid at a job whether you perform or not. I mean eventually you'll lose your job if you don't perform but you only get paid by the Massive Action that you take and if you're a success you can work forty sixty eighty hours a week. But if you're not if you're not doing it, right, there's no money. And I think that's the key and the joy of being an entrepreneur is when money goes into your account, you know, you worked for it and you earned it and I'm not discounting people that have jobs. I'm just saying there's something magical and it's almost like the juice is worth the squeeze. It is really hard to be an entrepreneur down hard and the sense of fulfillment that you have as an entrepreneur, especially when you start hiring employees. To know that you are responsible for them and then you're providing for them and they're providing for their family. That's an incredible feeling. There's something magical about that. Yeah, exactly. Yeah, and I I mean I got bitten by the the entrepreneurship but definitely but I think I came to a point where I was like, well I can keep trying and failing or I could maybe get it fixed it back loan a few things about starting a business and then try again later, right? And I don't think there's anything wrong with taking that approach either in just like sort of being very honest with yourself about skills you have and don't have where you need to grow as a person to be a good entrepreneur and then learning the skills and then getting it in a real shot, you know. Now is that I'm an atheist and I live in Houston, but was that limit stand you worked for them or you own lemonade stand? I work for them. Yeah, so that led me to let me send because when I got that blog blog was around e-commerce, and so I started to one of the ways I figured okay. Let me try some traffic to the blog was like a interview different e-commerce tools and then publish them on the blog right and then have the affiliate link over there. So I interviewed I somehow got in touch with the founder of lemon send off and they were just like a, you know, full bus and start up at four or five person start up at that point and they were e-commerce platform kind of like Shopify like but like trying to go like sort of bigger markets wage. Um, and so I got in touch with them I did the interview and and then he we we just sort of kept in touch and he mentioned he needs some help with like I'm content right and it's like well I've been doing and stuff and how about I I do I offer some of my services to you as a Content marketer and they like, yeah, so we we start working and I was doing some freelance work and I just find I left Vietnam came back to Canada and and I was in my parents. I was going back to the parents. I was right so I kind of just I needed not to be in my parents house in Visa wage adults who is living in Spanish basement. So I was like, well, these guys are in Canada as well, but they're in Vancouver and so, uh, he had mentioned that he wanted someone. I do like do all the marketing and it's like I spend lots company years doing some freelance marketing learning content. So on and so forth. I figured out the basics like why not? Maybe I join this company wage, you know a loan how the companies built I learn how to start up is built as work closely with the CEO and founder and of course, I'll be able to move out of my parents house and go to New City and live their life. And and so yeah, that was the next thing and it's like, all right. It's a yes, I'll be looking for someone else but alone how to build the company so that in a few years so my goal was all wage. To leave a mentally and start my own thing, right? I never I never left side of that goal and everything I did was in service to that girl was join your company learning how to do things and so on. Yeah, that's a smart way to do it. Like that's just smart and I think it already has always just to teach right you started a course. She started to teach. Yeah, so we're going to course on YouTube. I did. Yes. So while I was at lemon stand and I was doing the marketing. I mean, like I said, I still had a largely entrepreneurship. It's right. That was I never lost outage. So I said all right on the sidewalk in my Ricans in free time. Let me teach people how to do content marketing because that's something that figured out like how to earn money writing blog content online. So I created an online course on udemy teaching people how to write content and I put it out there as make some income on the side. And I was going to need to look at let me stand we do the company, you know over time over like a year and then my online course was not making too much money and I started off. All right, you know like obviously people want to buy this out but like with your Demi it's just very hard for me to like control who's buying the course and how much how you know setting my own prices. So I need to create a website. That's my own brand right? So I host a host on the coast of my brand and I can make way more income there. And as I was doing some research and I found a company in Vancouver as well, that was an online course company called think if they basically created a platform that allows you to host your normal process. So I met the CEO when he was giving a talk at a local networking event. And we we started talking, you know, giving you some ideas about marketing the platform my experience at L'Auberge and and he said hey, why don't you come join us and and hook US market leader marketing and I was like, wow. Okay, that's great. And you know, they were offering me more and I could see like huge potential in this company and it was also like a small start-up and I would get sort of like a leadership role to grow it into a big company and they said that's a great choice and again, you know all in service of that goal of me. Eventually. I'm building my own business, right? So like I would be here learning how to how a company operates how to hire people how to how to scale a marketing team on a scale a company. Um, So I said yeah and it took that role and so I moved on to the second. That was my Yeah, so in essence what you're doing is you're getting paid to go to school. Like that's brilliant. Exactly. Yeah. Yeah. That's the time you started right? Was that just a few just only eight people there when you start it? Yeah, I think it was just like seven or eight people was an employee number eight or something like that. Yeah. So again, very small very small number of people at the office every month into one one tiny room. And but it was a very good it was very like everyone is my age. It was all very friendly and we just had a really great time. So like could be able to work with you know, and the work was challenging and and yeah, it's you're learning a lot. You're you're doing a lot of stuff you're getting paid to learn like you said and you're having a good time doing it with great people around you nothing wrong with that know now the successes are starting pylon. So you had forced for failures and now your success is Europe to 3 a.m. So you're starting these you're starting to catch up and you're accelerating and the one thing I want to acknowledge about you and then I think you can learn a lot from you. Is that one you don't let fear. Or stop you. And if you have a failure, you just adjust pivot go left go right go Center and you put yourself in position to to have opportunity happen. You ask and you put yourself out there and that's one thing that is something that not everyone does and it's so powerful to be around opportunity and to jump in when you see opportunity and to ask That's a great point. You bring up you ask because I realize, you know, if you don't ask you don't get and and early on in my career. Like when I was a management consulting firm, I never really asked and asked for like a raging or anything right and just let things happen. But when I was like in my second go working at these startups like diamonds don't think if I got you started asking you say. Hey, can I do this? Hey, can you give me that race or can you pay me? Can you give me that much equity and I just found the people would say, you know, make sure okay. Let's go, you know, and and so and the thing is the reason that you get when you ask is most people don't ask and they don't get and so when someone does have the Breakthrough of fear and they actually asked people respect you when you're a confident and you ask for what you want. And you you exactly you get it because the worst that could happen is they say no and the upside is so much greater than just an l and when you realize that no will not kill you dead. It's just a re-frame. It's a Readjustment. It's a pivot if you want to raise you don't get a raise when you're like, okay great. I need to do something different to get the attention of the company. So they give me a raise money instead of oh, give me a raise. Exactly. Yeah, I know. It's just like you figured out a way to not ask for what you're asking for exactly reframe retool go away learn from that no money and look at as a gift because you're not doing something in that company. That is they feel a deserving of a raise. So figure out how you can add more value to the company. Is it race exactly? Yeah. Yep. Okay. Now now tell me about so you work for is it is it George's is that was that the company is it George's how do you say that gorgeous in San Francisco? Yeah, so that was optimized think of experience and like you said, yeah, the the successor decide to to slowly pick up right like that are all these failures trying a lot of different things and I take that back and said, okay. I'm going to go back into working at a start-up. No not like a big company and really learn how to build companies from from Ground Zero lemonstand got required by MailChimp. Thinkific is the next year. So those are like two big successes under my belt and I was the one who like let the early. They're so my name started to get around as well with various companies in Vancouver month. So after think if a guy I decided I was ready to start a company know what I wanted to start at that point, right? So I said, well, how about I do some Consulting at the various different counties work with the whole bunch of other stuff apply all the stuff that I know as a marketer, you know with my successes of MailChimp lemon scent and thinking ethic have a bunch of other companies in through this process of birth. Alone, I meet a lot of other Founders and be I'll I'll figure out what what kind of problems I could be solving in my when I start my company, right? So I was all in service of starting a company but is this is more of me going on to some like a fact-finding mission. So start working with a bunch of other companies, you know procurify here in Vancouver, um a couple of other small startups and then one company the market at that company was very impressed with my work that they introduced me to a friend of yours who had started a company in San Francisco. That was gorgeous home. So those guy company just flew me down to SF and I started working with them and sort of like a part-time head of marketing person are they want found like a full-time person and again for me that was mostly A way for me to network in San Francisco and meet other Founders and Venture capitalists cuz I knew eventually if I start my own company, I need that those connections. So again those news thinking about like two years ahead right off. So I was there and and through through my experience there, you know, the 3 months down into like a year of me staying in SF working with a bunch of other funded startups over them. So now I I started learning about the whole VC world, you know, meaning these these meaning funded startups. How does that work? How do companies raised around, you know all of that page and yet they're really break through your fear. They're like that's you have to really get fixed in because V C's are a whole nother world. That's that's a whole nother world. Exactly. Yeah, and it's already like tight Network. Right? Like it's it's not easy to break in but I I I did so one of the things I did when I first went I said was I just reached out a whole bunch of marketers at various data 6 a.m. Newtown would love to get a coffee and these people are very very open very friendly people. Everyone is new in to assist in some way or the other so Islands open to helping out another newbie. So I decided to build my network of marketers who introduced me to the network of Founders within eventually introduced me to the network of feces. That's kind of how like, I I sort of glue that Network so over the course of a year I built up a good Rolodex of how the founders in in V C's who like good thing reach out to whenever I need it if I was able to raising around right now does that lead you to where you are today? Yeah, exactly. So roundabout end of 2019. I came back to to Vancouver after my SS experience month and then I will still sort of doing some Consulting for today. I just companies start of twenty-twenty. But when the pandemic hit that's that's like a lot of my Consulting clients drop off because they want to cut marketing spend right? So I so for me it was like, okay now I have a lot of free time on my hands. You know now is is Kathy the US telling me to go and stop that company have no excuses left, right? I have I have the experience. I worked at so many different companies. So I've no I know how to build a company. I know how to grow them and and generous new I have the connections in the VCS and I have the time for those like everything fell into place and it's time for me to start off. And this idea of using AI to generate content had been around with me for a while because as as I work with various companies as a marketer wage, that was the one thing I noticed time and again was you needed content, right? You needed like your building your brand through a podcast in a companies would build your plan to a block or two ads or through social media and whatnot. Right? And it was all content. You need to create more and more content and have to be good content. You can't just create an operation put it up there and expect things to happen. And so that's expensive. You know, it's like it's not easy to create really good content all the time getting and day out and you you know, many companies are just supposed to keep hiring people or or you know, just spend a lot more. So when I was a kid comes with smaller budgets, we was just very hard for us to create that content and that was a problem, right? Cuz then this company couldn't go So right and you want to you want to create great content? Exactly. Yeah, and so that was kind of like where the idea came as like. Okay. Can we use AI to do this? Right and I decided to it was mostly like I spend a lot of time in 2019 judge just like researching guessing the idea of various friends, seeing what they thought of it and then twenty-twenty when everything happened and it all came together I said, all right, like let me start now and that's when I started to build. Yeah, that's amazing like right in the middle of pandemic and there was amazing like so many things that have happened during this pandemic of just people have just like, all right, it's time. I'm going to start it. Yeah, and it was kind of like a forcing function right like the pandemic a lot of people got laid off and they supposed to think about what does your life look like or what do they want to like to look like and you you realize that you know, no matter how good you have it at your job or how secure your job you think your job is because other people feel safe in a job. It's a secure income and a consistent income. But sometimes something comes along like a global pandemic that just changes it all up and everything does everything upside down, right? So a lot of people started thinking well, maybe a job is not as secure. They talked about maybe I should try to figure it out and take control of my life was letting a global pandemic control that random events around the world controlling. So yeah, I think it was it's off obviously did not a very good time for for the world in general, but people I think they realized that they could indeed take control of their lives. How do you keep trying new things? There's got to be what's your mindset? Like do you meditate you stay in the very present moment. Do you get connected to Mother Earth? Do you walk around in the grass? Barefoot? What what do you do? Like, you're you're you're kind of unique in that, you know, you have all these failures and you just keep keep going like I fail all the time and I'm just like, okay. Well, let me try something else. And so I think that's why you and I became Fast Friends is the fact that I see I'm like, oh not the only one you just keep going and you know always say I'm just too dumb to know that I can't succeed life just too dumb to know. I mean all the things that I've done was like, oh, I'm going to go do that. Okay. Well, let me just go do that. yeah, I Well, I guess so. I mean it's it's kind of like two sides of the car. Right one is one is just like to down to fail but also on the other side of the coin is like knowing that I have skills that people would pay for it. So I I have the freedom to try things and fail cuz I can always return to those skills and get paid for that. Right? Right like you can you can you can survive but you want to thrive exactly exactly. Yeah, I'm taking all these list so that I can try it right like but if I if I fail I don't die. I don't go to zero cuz I can still go back to the company that work with or talk to new companies and be like, hey pay me X number of dollars a month. I'll set up your ad for you. Right like I could still do that whenever I want it too. So I know that that option is always open to me and the the ability for me to own an income at least like a basic income maybe five $10,000 a month and sort of like a freelancer is always dead. So I'm not worried about feeling. Well as we start to wrap things up, you know, I just wanted to delve into a I really quick. Um, the bracha app is really incredible it it writes content for you in a way that is just thought it was almost like magic. It's really kind of cool. But what I wanted to say is that you know, my assistant Brent. I told her I said look cuz she writes all the copy for everything for Life transformation radio all the other podcasts for for everything for the courses that we created everything and she's like, oh my God, am I going to be out of a job and go actually not we're going to take this. It's going to free up your time so that you can do the fun stuff with me. Like it's can Elevate we're going to we're going to let the robot take care of all this stuff and then we're going to amplify and create even more. So I just invites you all the Ki is dead really kind of mind-blowing for me and in a way. Yeah, it could be scary. And if you look at it, it's the Genie's already out of the bottle like it's out there so you have to learn to Pivot right now and look into the future in a way and see how fast a eyes moving because it's moving really really fast. Yeah. Yeah, I like what you said about your your assistant there right like cuz that's the future I think is what is is going to happen and people are afraid to take the jobs know. It's going to help you elevate yourself to be a voltage has to think long-term to think creatively to think about the big picture, right? So no longer you have to waste your time and energy on the little things because it's very draining also too. I just have to keep creating a social. It's my numbering. It's boring your system doesn't want to keep doing that. That's she's not going to feel like she's living her life to her fullest potential. But if I cancel that stuff for a then she cannot do the things that she really enjoys doing but does she cares about working with you on like thinking about the big picture and seeing the future? Yeah, well, you definitely see the future. You're definitely someone who breaks through their fear. You're definitely someone who just has figured out and mastered.

She has gone up odin things but no student as as another as another aspect but even goes ice bows people like. There's there's no real fouls in every. Dan thank you know.

Like i'm up and saying how you were literally an hour breaking out there thing. We're condition due to run a guy them the tried to get a piece of cheese and get a power dam and and you know and be cool with that versus actually adapt in and learning. And that's why that's why you say entrepreneurship mountain often come commend anybody. Who's entrepreneur like. I don't care if you want to sail cookies on mothers or tail we or you want to sail socks or closed whatever but if you take a step out of faith and say you know what. I'm gonna do something different dash. She could be red neck and neck and a better financial stability and that's a damn mindless slave ship. Actually i really think just the financial aspect is part of it. But i'm fucking three eight. So i you know i take that that aspect i loved the creative. I love making model shit and sometimes satisfaction as well. No one did this shit. You know what. I'm saying just just being creative minute expressing so i'm definitely you know multiple aspects of entrepreneurship that that people are you earn for the about going gorillas the issue was push the balance and equality and i can say equal fight. Educated crazy enough is is art education. Does i am not capable to a lot of people on a financial stamp. Why like you would think of someone. That's highly Just just not even mean to cut you off but just an ad and it goes back to what i said. The landscape changes bro. And we've had this conversation before about you know back. In the day we were back in the eighties and nineties is just We've seen our parents. They worked know every day job or mostly general work adopted thirty years fucking retired and they call it a libraries of family life. She doesn't evolvement. Changing people are starting to show you that. You don't have to go to college to make money now. You don't tell people like now that as a whole nother narrative that you can't be snappy with thought leadership doesn't necessarily work because let's be real is with school. They were really pushing house. Like that realistically i mean they did they did was causing. It wasn't going to trade school or go to the military right. I'm so sorry are listening. Thank you for joining us. Scientists at condie's of email. 'cause podcast burning live is monday night raw. I know we started little. Were to entrepreneurs. We have our show ladies hostel movement. Forgive us for that but hey thank you joining us all if you haven't already the little follow bud on us Also please make sure you call his branca. Apd cast also follow us. We have all the lakes in their profiles. Definitely tuned in this. All before you start late. Yeah that's really interesting It just makes me think about how like you know you said all these years going to school in etc. A lot of people are unhappy you know in their careers or some of them. Don't even get a job on in particular career that they went to school for but i also think about how when you look at all the years of education how much money we've spent education They don't teach you how to run your own business how to start your own business or even how to be entrepreneur of me now. Being in private practice. I feel like there's a lot of gap of things missing and i'm having the have to either pay people to help me or more to do a lot of researchers spend a lot more time on getting information because everything is completely new to me. Y'all have the skills and the knowledge to be a counselor but the business side and all of that and just managing my own business is missing. Thank you often. The chime in on our appreciation pollen in one of our dedicated listeners. But let me ask you this. Why would you say that they from what you're saying. Would you say that you feel equal the somebody because you have a higher education or would you feel more balanced you know versus you do your own thing. And that's why i've got know is being equal better than be balanced going on equal or math equal to be balanced life present to me. Now when balanced your factor. I can say that. I wanna be somebody educational. I wanna be a doctor. I got a equal to the rest of these multi. Core with that mega cap balanced shoring. I'll show me the most loggers. I make moldy so money. What my debt ratio. Is dan air thousand times more than what i actually make. He's i'm saying now. Is it better to try to be equal somebody or better to have your life. And now it's like lead worked to try to equal somebody. You're put out much much work as them just to be on your level however you might not interview you might double heart or twice as damn hard just to make what they make in aden will sour. You were just as hard as somebody in your three or four times more qualified anymore poker. In their educational wise try be equal. However your life is out of balance your stress on a damn time. You damn shit you use an andros trying to get over. You know what i'm saying but most people try. Try to find the real balance. When i started doing stuff that their actual purpose is like for example. They actually love to do you know. And that's i mean dom like my situations when a couple of years that i was. What two thousand sixteen director executive director for boys and girls club. And i had no fucking downside no work. You remember browse sixty hours a week. I was you basketball games. If it was fucking all our strength you know. They weren't trying to move. You got me point. And they wouldn't let me go higher. I gotta get rid of this shit. I miss an excellent. I suggested entrepreneurial shit started kicking in. And it's time to get where i am now. Yeah it was a pivotal step. I wish there was something. How would alert little earlier. I know my pops always says stuff but he really showed me. You know what i'm saying. Like when i do stuff and i felt my son i'll be thinking damn hotel on it but i think i need to be example. Show that shit do so. I'm just on that but that that balance isn't the theorists especially work nights now talks. Everything friendships your relationships. Your marriage but but listening to talk about that but he will mouth. This is say people just going to look relationship type stuff right Think about this relationship. Mary date. In you know matter you spend more time. Try to be equal with your partner or you spend more time to be balanced with really think about that. You know what. I'm saying like really get these calls got to both people check i share. I'm following. Can you restate the question john. La areo. it's better to have balance. Then i mean equal imbalances the same shit. I don't see the difference because you're trying to get to a state of equilibrium. So i mean that's just like the sun and moon you know the. What is the son without the moon. What is the night without the dark. Everything is trying to be in balance if you even if you know about chemistry ever all the elements are just trying to get balanced. Everything is about a circle pretty much trying to get to an unnatural state. So for instance me. I'm trying to get into law school right now because you know i went to school for finance and everything but i'm i'm bored. I'm like yo. I need to do something else i need to do. Something i'm passionate about. You know our investigate finance you know people's accounts you know fraud and all that. Aml and stuff like that. But i want to do something else directly to help people. So i see people saying look late as far as the same thing in this case is not soup or a stew soup. His adopted said different different pronunciation. Pro-gay balance does not have the sun in the mall are two to forgot. Damn damn rock. The sun is fucking damn near the biggest thing in our souls. Another galaxy the thing in our solar system bright brighten. The moon is a little piece of his damn planet again. They create balanced by as far mass as far as energy them. Damn things are now looking saying for example. My wife right. We are not as far as as far as we're not as far as weight. Were not dig wounded weight balance. We have a different type of balance that keeps each other damn equal balance. Stay so i'd give jace and it's equal mouse or is different definition using under maintenance. I'm consider relationship. They are you going to be with somebody more trying to be equal them balance with them the same time that some. I said earlier where you can't run your race you can't you can't get caught up in run your race with somebody else. Like for apple. Con- you are. These art is right for people that don't know. Gandhi says the music artist making use promote. Since i met him for that right now musically we are not got them. If i love using got dante shit we're nowhere near full on music. I have apple music. Knock it started. I can't that flow. i love music. We're not give up now. Dallas wise like say music or alexei. How big or even when it comes as partnership we have different things that are not give however we balance chill out. Come on man. I got i got here talking about equal light from salary standpoint. I think that's an interesting way to put it I feel like ultimately people stay at their jobs. Because there's that salary there's comfort you know that you're going to get paid etc and it could be scary to transition into working for yourself. Because is that thought. Oh my gosh. I might not have enough money to pay this. Or what if i don't make any money And so i think there's a fine line because you kinda have to expect that when you start your own business you may not have as much money on the front end starting off but then just being consistent with it because it's going to pay off in that you're gonna make money on now. I think it just depends on the profession as well in my particular situation. I actually am saving time and making more money so I don't i don't know that goes back again. I'm again any by you. Know definitely time in. And you know if you don't agree while i'm saying hey cool i you know the talk reason you boss and even with that balance you work less time and make more money. That's balance alive because who is my layers. People who the fuck wants to go to work every damn day from nine five. You don't really have time to spend time with yourself. Let alone family or friends or children or any other type passion Yeah i understand a lot of people say hey it's a grind you gotta kill the grind man from nine to five job from six to ten grind. I yeah that's cool all but again let's say l. fucking family deal with that's gonna play out the way it is you know and i'm not trying to make excuse range but that's the whole fouls comes into you know but you know i don't want to go to raw now right now. These vassili get these calls at the same time you're not really Saving much time when you have to spend so much time doing research in china filling in the gaps.

And what works best for us and not really Necessarily put yourself in a category where you have to compare yourself to other people. i mean. it's obvious that a a medical doctor is going to make more money than a a counselor educator who has a doctorate in education so I think it's just a matter of how each person uniquely views themselves. And i agree with that but you know but at the same time these cosby say. Oh oh a purse with a high school. Diploma only makes twenty thousand dollars. What you get that. Bachelor's start out. They like that you know about thirty we know. Now i'm saying i'm saying for like when they told us that that that bush because they they put that bush and ask little propaganda off saying yeah bachelors. You're gonna start making this amount you know and make this. You got gotta doctor. You're gonna make some out. And i know i ate this horse worked before. But that's not fucking.

Now with a con diesel. Man what's A mattress good evening. Good evening good evening I was listening to you are saying about being equal and being balance. I don't think i think that okay. Equal comes from perspective and a lotta time surface level perspective What we identify. Is you know how it should be what we've learned our tradition bubba blah. But i think balance is more spirituality balanced when sunderland even with conflate it's it's peaceful even with Division chaos is different things totally different standing of Frisia an preside sand mouse and definitely people.

It's the same thing i said. One needs the other mainly everything is trying to be balanced to a natural state. That's all i'm saying. I'm not saying it's the same. Of course to son is not the the moon equal more. I'm just saying everything is trying to get to. Its natural state of balance. That's all i'm saying We all in relationships no matter what type of relationship family friends or whatever when you argue. You're out of balance when you come together as one. There's a balanced there when you're in a relationship a marriage. There's a balanced there to minds meeting to make one meeting of the minds. That's balance so Maybe you didn't understand what i was saying. The way i articulated. Maybe i used the wrong analysis tool to basically state what i was saying.
